Dwight Laws, BYU Director, in our memories

On March 11, James Rawson, Secondary School Programs Administrator of the Department of Independent Study at BYU, informed AACIS colleagues of the passing of Dwight Laws, the Director of the department at BYU.“It is with regret that we inform you that our Director, Dr. Richard Dwight Laws, passed away after a ten-year battle with cancer, last night at 6:30 p.m." 

Dwight was foremost in developing a highly successful online program and over the past 15 years moved it to the forefront in Distance Education.  He saw growth from 20-plus employees to more than 200 in the department. 

Most of all he will be known for his leadership, friendship and devotion to his family and Church.  He was a man of great faith and vision, who never complained about his personal health issues.  He will be sorely missed by his friends and colleagues.
