$250K Gift Establishes Aero Faculty Fellowship

Dr. Erik Young (B.S. '74, biochemistry) and his wife, Joyce, have helped the Department of Aerospace Engineering to establish a faculty fellowship with a gift of $250,000.


The gift, part of a total $1 million the couple recently gave to the university, was given in memory of Erik Young’s father, Willis H. Young Jr. (B.S. '43 and M.S. '49, aerospace engineering).


"The department is deeply honored by the fact that Dr. Young wishes to acknowledge the education that his father, Willis Young, received with the significant gift of a named faculty endowment," said Darryll Pines, chair of the aerospace engineering department.


The department has convened a committee to select the recipient of the Willis Young Faculty Fellow title.
