Special thanks to the Class of '67 graduates who joined us at this year’s graduation celebration! The following alumni were honored with a 50th reunion reception and recognized during ME’s graduation ceremony; a hosted luncheon followed the festivities:

  • Dale DePriest, BSME
  • Keith Johnson, BSME
  • George Ringstadt, BSME
  • Stein Skattum, BSME ('64)
  • David Tegeler, BSME
  • Per Valbo, BSME

For 2016-17, ME awarded nearly 160 bachelor’s degrees, 80 master’s and 20 doctoral degrees to graduating students.

This year’s graduation address was delivered by Allen D. Israel, BSME ’68. Israel is a senior member of Foster Pepper PLLC, where he has practiced business law since 1978. He shared his perspective on the usefulness of a ME degree in non-traditional career pathways.
