About the Donor

 

David F. Fox

 

     This Fund was established by David Fox’s parents from a bequest in David’s own will. David’s interest in electrical engineering started in junior high school and continued until his death at the age of 29 from cancer.  He was a “hands-on” engineer whose interest in electronics was sparked by doing projects out of trade magazines, assembling Heath Kits and building hi-fi audio equipment.  He even designed and built an electronic toy that won an award at WSU.

     David felt his life was significantly enhanced because of the challenges and rewards of his electrical engineering involvement.  He graduated from WSU with a BSEE in February 1982. He worked for Westmar in Seattle from 1982 to 1984 and for the Marine Division of Honeywell from 1984 until his death in December of 1987.

     Besides electronics, he loved sailing, hiking, playing his drum set, music and scuba diving.  At WSU, he was a member of Kappa Sigma Fraternity and ran in the first Apple Cup Run in 1979.

      This scholarship fund was established to perpetuate support for young men and women interested in electrical engineering and its related branches. It is the intent of this memorial fund to enable others to perpetuate a similar rewarding life through the assistance this fund provides.  The Endowment is also intended to add strength and stature to the School of EECS by providing the ability to recruit talented students interested in electrical engineering.

 

Current Recipients

  • Yanek Kondryszyn, "I wanted to write to you in order to have a chance to express my sincere and wholehearted thanks for donating to the EE/CS program at Washington State.  It has been difficult to find sufficient funding in order to continue my schooling with the rising costs of education.  In recent years through a variety of influences, namely my church, the lives of my mentors, and a few authors, I have been instilled with the desire to give a large portion of my current and future income to a couple of different ministries.  In particular, the causes of Peak 7 and International Justice Mission (IJM) have resonated with me.  I also hope to be able to work with both of these organizations firsthand in the future.  I am thinking of interning with IJM should I go to law school.  Thank you so much for choosing to invest in me.  Your choice to support me is one step towards advancing the industry of Electrical and Computer Engineering , and by proxy, the causes of Peak 7 and IJM."
