DES MOINES, IA — (November 30, 2017) The Iowa Taxpayers Association, the state's leading nonpartisan business tax policy resource since 1935, in conjunction with the family of Linda S. Weindruch is pleased to announce that Dillon Malone, law student at Drake University, has been chosen as the recipient of the 2017 Linda S. Weindruch Scholarship. This academic award will be presented to Malone at the Iowa Taxpayers Association Annual Meeting & Tax Symposium luncheon on December 7, 2017, at The Meadows Events & Conference Center in Altoona, Iowa.

The purpose of this award is to recognize outstanding accomplishments and educational pursuit of experiences promoting and protecting the principles of fair business and law policies. The Iowa Taxpayers Association offers this scholarship in memory and in recognition of Linda S. Weindruch, who passed away after a long battle with multiple sclerosis in October 2004.

Weindruch was a graduate of Drake University Law School and communicated her loyalty to the school throughout her career. She was an active, longtime member of the Iowa Taxpayers Association. She was elected to serve on its board of directors in 1994 and served 10 active years. She was a tremendous friend of Iowa business and worked diligently to develop and shape legislative and regulatory policy that supported sound taxation principles.

Dillon D. Malone is a third-year law student at the Drake University Law School in Des Moines, Iowa. He currently serves as the Editor in Chief of the Drake Law Review. During his first year of Law School, he interned with the Iowa Finance Authority and Meredith Corporation. In his second year, Malone was a Teaching Assistant for the Legal Research and Writing Program at Drake University Law School. He currently clerks for Carney & Appleby, P.L.C.

Malone received his bachelor’s in Politics from Drake University. While an undergraduate at Drake, he was involved with the Drake College Republicans and Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity, holding leadership positions in both. From 2012 to 2015, he clerked in the Iowa House of Representatives for Representative Ron Jorgensen.

Malone grew up in Dow City, Iowa, graduating from Boyer Valley High School in Dunlap, Iowa. He is proudly the son of Ted and Sandi Malone of Dow City.
