In Memory of Dick Fitzner and Les Eberhardt

The award is in memory of Dick Fitzner and Les Eberhardt, whose untimely deaths cut short their outstanding service and contribution to students, teachers, and faculty. Dick and Les demonstrated commitment and dedication of their time and talents not only to their research but also to the education and training of future scientists, engineers, and technologists. They taught university courses, mentored and advised university students and faculty; visited elementary, middle and high school classrooms; and hosted students and teachers from across the country in research experiences at Pacific Northwest. Read More
