The Dan Springer Memorial Fund has been established to honor Dan's life and career as a teacher and artist by providing scholarships to Theatre students.
Dan was born November 17, 1960 in Rolla, Missouri. He graduated from Missouri State University in 1983, and would go on to teach at MU for more than 17 years. Working with hundreds of students over the years, Dan is remembered as teacher, mentor and friend.
"Dan has influenced a generation of students and theatre artists who were forever transformed by knowing him and working with him," says Jon Drtina, a friend and colleague in the Department of Theatre.
