The Lars Lyon Award is made possible by a memorial endowment established by the friends and family of Lars Lyon, a Duke mechanical engineering student who died in 1988 of a rare cancer. While at Duke, Lars was an active and enthusiastic volunteer with Circle K and Ronald McDonald House among other service organizations.
