BSU president and Jean Lanners

President Faith C. Hensrud recognizes Jean Lanners as the 2019 Distinguished Service award recipient.

Bemidji State University’s 2019 Distinguished Service award goes to Office and Administrative Specialist Jean Lanners who is recognized by colleagues as always makes the person they are working with feel like the most important person on campus.

Described as a “dedicated, distinguished employee,” Lanners was praised for her knowledge and ability to find the answers to any question asked. Seen as the type of person who “has a great day every day,” Lanners has been described as having “the soft skills that we all hope to achieve” and being an “extremely professional individual who will make sure everything is taken care of for everyone.”

A nominating colleague said, “I feel very privileged to work with someone who is such a dedicated, high-quality employee and who has always gone above and beyond.”
