Lewis & Clark Alumni Award Honoring Dana Plautz ’82
March 07, 2014
Each year the Board of Alumni honors alumni who have achieved distinction in their chosen field, have shown exceptional leadership qualities and/or have rendered outstanding volunteer service in their communities and the College.
After successful careers in the entertainment and computer industries, Dana Plautz—an avid volunteer throughout her life—now spends most of her free time helping others. Through her service on the Board of Alumni from 2005 to 2011, and as a chair of the Events and Volunteers Committee, she worked to increase interactions between students and alumni, including at the biannual Careers for Pioneers event. Dana also serves on the Parents Council, Alumni Career Corps, reunion committees, and the L&C Strategic Planning Work Group, and she helps select recipients of the Alumni Leadership Scholarship.
