Brian Howell was a journalist at the Wisconsin State Journal and was the editor of Madison Magazine. Howell wrote about three main passions of his: Madison’s lakes, biotechnology and life sciences, and the intersection of lifestyle and business. Howell brought his passion for writing to his LSC students as he was a popular instructor. When Brian passed away in 2003, his media colleagues, family, and friends established the Brian Howell Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded annually to students in LSC who have taken LSC’s Case Studies in the Communication of Science and Technology capstone course which shares Howell’s values. Brian Howell was an inspiration to his students and his legacy will continue to be passed on as his endowment has and will benefit LSC’s undergraduate and graduate students for years to come.
