We are excited to announce the guest speaker for TCC's 111th Annual Dinner will be Justice Alan Page, Former Associate Justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court & NFL Hall of Famer!

Justice Page served on the Minnesota Surpreme Court from 1992 until 2015 when he reached the mandatory retirement age of 70. He was the first African American on the court and one of the few associate justices ever to join the court initially through election, rather than appointment by the governor.

Law was Alan Page’s second career; he was first known for his skills in football both in college and in the NFL.  At Notre Dame, Alan Page led the school’s storied football program to the 1966 national championship, and in 1993 he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.

Alan Page was a first-round draft choice of the Minnesota Vikings in 1967 and he played for the Vikings until 1978.  The last three years of his football career were with the Chicago Bears, 1978–1981.  During his career, Alan Page played in 218 consecutive games, earning All-Pro honors six times, and was voted to nine consecutive Pro Bowls.  In 1971 he was named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player, becoming only the second defensive player in history to be named MVP.  In 1988 Alan Page was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
