About the Donor

Kenneth “Max” Ramble is a Colville, Washington, native and a 1970 graduate in electrical engineering. Max has recently retired from a very successful career with Hewlett-Packard and Agilent (following the HP-Agilent split).  He attributes much of his professional success to his WSU education, with special appreciation  for the teaching of the late Dr. Harriet Rigas, chair of electrical and computer engineering when he was a student.

Janet Ramble grew up in  Spokane, graduated from Whitman College and had a career as executive director for the Washington State Auto Dealers’ Association. The Rambles’ retirement activities have included extensive domestic travel, hiking, bicycling, and classes to enhance their enjoyment of their hobbies.

Max and Janet have made provision through their will to endow the Max and Janet Ramble Scholarship upon their death.  Meanwhile, they contribute annually to a scholarship of the same name, which provides financial assistance to currently enrolled electrical engineering students in need and deserving of scholarships.

Recipients will be majoring in electrical engineering at the junior or senior level in their academic career.  The scholarship selection committee decides annually, according to circumstances, whether the total contributions to the Ramble scholarship in any one year should be awarded as one lump sum to one student or in multiple disbursements to more than one student.

The Rambles’ annual stock gift was generously matched by HP, later Agilent, before Max’s retirement in 2003.
