Bruce Atwater ’06 Posted on March 12th, 2015 by

Bruce Atwater ’06, his mother, Star Marie Anderson and several members of the Anderson family gathered on campus on Friday, March 6, 2015 to award the first Anderson Summer Scholar Award to Anna Krieger ’17. The award was established with an initial gift from the Estate of Barbara K. Anderson and a gift from Star Marie Anderson. Barbara’s grandson, Bruce, graduated with a degree in chemistry from Gustavus Adolphus College and went on to complete his PhD and continue his post doctoral fellowship at York University. While at Gustavus, Bruce participated in summer student/faculty chemistry research. Bruce credits that experience with helping to prepare him for the rigors of graduate school and a career in science. He encouraged his family to establish this family legacy fund which would allow students to work intensively on a research project in chemistry with a faculty mentor.
