    Dodie Dunson---Lowe's Senior Class Award

    If you get the chance today, vote for former Cyclone Dodie Dunson to win the Lowe's Senior Class Award that recognizes the top student athlete on the based involvment in the community, effort in the classroom, character, and competition. For those of you that remember, Dodie had an undiagnosed learning disability (dislexia) at Iowa State and it wasn't discovered until he was in junior college in Indiana. At Bradley University, he has achieved a remarkable 3.7 GPA in Social Work while battling a severe form of dislexia. This is a prestigious award and knowing Dodie, I think he represents everything this award stands for. (Plus I dont want that doosher Reed from KU to win)

    You can vote here:

    1 -- huge props to Dodie. I voted. Always seemed like a great kid.

    2 -- what an epic failure by Iowa State University.

    Good for Dodie. I am certainly pulling for him

    This might be the first time I wish I had a facebook page, but alas I will only be able to vote with my positve thoughts.

    Learning disability - dyslexia. ISU never thought of that?

    At the time he transferred, it was openly discussed as the main reason why. It never made sense though, as I knew at least one dyslexic student while I was at ISU and they had a special system set up to help them (more time for tests, etc).

    Re: Dodie Dunson---Lowe's Senior Class Award

    I got the chance to meet Dodie while working at Mac's camp a few years ago. He is an outstanding young man and I was incredibly disappointed when he left ISU. I'm glad he made the most of his opportunity.

    There was some discussion that he was encouraged to go in order to help graduation stats. I'm tired, and now I forget the initials....

    He was.

    I remember it being a really awkward position. Some asked the question "How can a university not have a program to help a kid like that? Isn't that the whole point?"

    There really weren't any good answers, and we obviously needed him.

    I respect Bradley for making it work, and obviously Dodie, because he did the hardest part. That dude had plenty of 'reasons' to quit, and never ever did. I love that sort of thing.
