MENDOTA HEIGHTS, Minn. (WCCO) — A Twin Cities school is honoring the legacy of Minnesota-author Vince Flynn, who died of prostate cancer in June at the age of 47.
Flynn is best known for his popular series of political thrillers featuring the character Mitch Rapp.
But outside of writing, he was extremely generous with his time helping raise millions of dollars for a number of charities, and also St. Thomas Academy.
St. Thomas plans to name its new student activities center after Flynn.
He had been a trustee at the school in Mendota Heights, and also helped on the new facility’s capital campaign.
Flynn Hall will be dedicated in October.
