Polsinelli Dan Boulware, managing partner of the St. Joseph office of law firm Polsinelli, will receive an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from Missouri Western State University and will be the commencement speaker on December 15.

“Dan is an outstanding attorney and a great friend of higher education in general and Missouri Western in particular,” said Dr. Robert Vartabedian, Missouri Western’s president. “He has been an outstanding advocate on our behalf to the governor and other state leaders, has been dedicated for two decades to our Convocation on Critical Issues, and is working hard to secure funding to upgrade and expand our facilities. If you have worked with Dan as I have, you would not be surprised by all that he has done for our university and our community. What is surprising is that he has done all this while being one of the busiest and most respected attorneys in the country. It is my privilege to present Dan with Missouri Western’s highest honor in recognition of his many professional achievements as well as his dedication to the success of our university.”
