ULM Criminal Justice professor receives U.S. Marine Corps award

An assistant professor at the University of Louisiana at Monroe recently received an award from the United States Marine Corps.

Assistant Professor Dean Lanham of the department of criminal justice earned the General James T. Conway, Commandant of the Marine Corps’ Quality Citizen Recognition award, as a representative of the Marine Corps within the community. Lanham has been a dedicated volunteer of his time, assistance, and service in the area, according to ULM’s Criminal Justice Department Head Robert Hanser.

“His previous service in the Marine Corps enables him to have a unique understanding of what epitomizes the core values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment of the Corps and what it takes to become a Marine,” said Hanser. “His emphasis on education and service to the community, the state of Louisiana, and the United States has been exemplary.”
