Laurence D. and Bonny M. Huestis Endowment for Faculty/Student Summer Research in Chemistry

Posted by:

With great appreciation we are pleased to announce the new Laurence D. and Bonny M. Huestis Endowment for Faculty/Student Summer Research in Chemistry.   Thank you so much, Larry and Bonny!

This gift strongly signifies the dedication and commitment that Bonny and Larry both have for PLU and the department.  Bonny has been one of the main faces of the PLU Yule Boutique and a key memberBonnie and Laurence Huestis of the chemistry family emeriti.  Larry trained many students in research and has always enjoyed the types of chemical puzzles that we encounter in the lab and that he would often craft for students when he taught the Organic Special Projects Laboratory.

We count on endowments like this as well as others listed at our Endowments and Scholarships page to help support the large number of students who wish to do summer research each year.  Even so, there are more qualified and deserving students than there is support available each year.  Our number of majors is growing and the department is thriving.   We would greatly appreciate your support for our students through a contribution to any of these endowments or perhaps even through the creation of a new endowment opportunity in support of summer research.

Thank you again so much, Bonny and Laurence, and thanks to all of you who support our program.
