High school principal Linda Isebrand said, among Rollings other contributions, he helped facilitate School Board forums and he worked to bolster the city's business community. Rollings also is credited as being an integral figure in getting the LCWM bond referendum passed and in the completion of the Lake Crystal Area Recreation Center project.
Annette Rode, assistant to the superintendent, said Rollings also was involved with the German Exchange program at LCWM and served as a chaperone to Germany.
“He was a great proponent of the community and just an all-around great guy,” Isebrand said.
A maple tree will be planted near the athletic complex at the high school, and the dedication of the tree and a plaque in Rollings' memory are planned during the homecoming game Sept. 27.
