Winona Post: Lundblad lauded as he leaves Southeast

By Chris Rogers, June 16, 2021

When state leaders encouraged Larry Lundblad to come out of retirement and take a job as interim college president in 2018, it was intended to be a one-year gig. After all, it was a four-hour drive from the new job at Winona's Minnesota State College (MSC Southeast) to his wife and their home in Brainerd, Minn. Three and a half years later, Lundblad is passing the baton after helping MSC Southeast rise to meet the needs of students and businesses and a growing demand for technical education.

After his initial one-year stint, Lundblad said yes to multiple contract extensions -- before knowing exactly what 2020 would hold. "Of course, then we had the pandemic, and I didn't read the fine print when the chancellor gave me the contract," Lundblad joked at a retirement celebration last week, as he praised the school's staff for their work to keep educating students safely during one of the most tumultuous periods in recent history.
