Dr. Allan F. Wolfe

“When I arrived at LVC in 1968, I was fortunate to choose some very good mentors. They included Tony Neidig, chair of the Chemistry Department, “Rinso” Marquette, dean of students, and Bob Wonderling, director of development. Not only did they show me how to navigate various college teaching situations, student advising, and college committees, but also they did it every noon as we met to play squash or racquetball. Paul Wolf of the Biology Department was another important mentor. He was chair of the Biology Department for more than 40 years, and I learned many important lessons about teaching, science, and leadership from him.”

“Dr. Allan F. Wolfe taught me to strive hard and never stop reaching for my goals. He helped me understand that nothing comes easy and you have to commit fully to achieve your life’s dreams—and often times when you are stretched to your breaking point, those moments will reveal your true desire to achieve those goals. And the confidence that comes with achieving those goals, as they are often hard fought, is life-changing. He was so right. I was fortunate enough to have the experience of working for Dr. Wolfe for one summer—a summer that left an indelible print on who I am today.”
