The Lanny Solomon Memorial Scholarship

The Henry W. Bloch School of Management considers dedicated faculty among its greatest assets and Dr. Solomon set the bar for excellence.

Lanny Michael Solomon graduated from Miami University and received his Ph.D. from Case Western Reserve University. He dedicated his life to education and his passion was student success. He expected the best from his students and always provided the extra attention and tutoring to help them achieve that goal. Dr. Solomon came to the Bloch School in 1998 and during his tenure served as Chair of the Department of Accountancy, Interim Dean, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Administration and a member of the UMKC Budget Committee.

In partnership with Dr. Solomon’s high school sweetheart and wife of 44 years, UMKC is establishing the Lanny Solomon Memorial Scholarship. This award will support a promising Bloch School student. Your generosity in helping to create this endowed scholarship will ensure that future students forever remember Dr. Solomon’s impact.
