A special honor for former longtime Moorhead Mayor and former Minn. State Rep. Morrie Lanning. Lanning is the recipient of the 2017 Bud Grant Distinguished Minnesotan Award. The award is given out each year by the Minnesota Vikings and the Minnesota Chapter of the National Football Foundation. NFF Spokesman Sean Gothier says Lanning is being recognized for his legislative work in making the new Minnesota Vikings’ stadium a reality. Lanning will receive the award during the annual Minnesota Football Honors Ceremony at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday, May 7th.
