From the fundholder:
This fund was established to honor Al Gunkler, a PhD Chemical engineer who believed in the value of critical thinking gained in the study of math, science, and engineering. A background in the sciences is a basis for many disciplines and contributes to the sustainability of our world. The Gunkler family wants to encourage students to pursue these fields.
