Lawless was a 1928 graduate of McKinley High School.  Throughout his career as an educator, he was committed to the proper training and education of young people in the state of Louisiana.  Dr. Lawless will be long-remembered for his exemplary work at Southern University, Baton Rouge as Dean and Coordinator of Freshman Studies.  The commitment to excellence, love and devotion that typified his work with young people, especially underprivileged minority students was the legacy that provided the impetus for the Dr. Harrison D.
