Longtime dean honored as fine leader, friend

Family, colleagues and friends of the late Steve Flynn gathered outside Southern Oregon University's McNeal Pavilion Wednesday to dedicate two large steel benches bearing plaques to honor the 27-year dean of students and director of financial aid who died of Alzheimer's last year at 74. With no shortage of damp eyes and choked voices, Flynn was recalled as that rare kind of administrator who made it fun for everyone, loved jokes, nicknames, one-line zingers and keggers and could still get the job done at the highest level, while always honoring the student first.
