Standout Spartan: Locke Pfannebecker '27

The Steward School
Honoring a loved one in a unique way
When Locke Pfannebecker ’27 jumps into the frigid water of Lake Superior on February 19, he’ll be thinking about his Uncle Alex. Locke’s beloved uncle participated in the Polar Plunge  — an annual fundraiser to benefit Special Olympics Minnesota — for many years. After Alex died, Locke’s dad participated in the event, and this year, Locke will take the plunge in his uncle’s memory. Locke, who has raised nearly $650 for Special Olympics Minnesota, will travel to the event with his dad and stepmom. He’ll be jumping with his cousin and his aunt. 

“The Polar Plunge will be a ‘wing-it’ thing,” said Locke when asked if he’s been training for the event. “It’ll be fun … but kind of sad for me, too, because Alex and I were very close.”

Warm wishes, Locke. Your Spartan family is so proud of you.
