A scholarship established in memory of former Sandia employee Walter Bauer through the Pedrozzi Foundation has been awarded to two high school students from Livermore. The scholarships honor Walter’s leadership in the scientific community and his love of cycling.
Granada High School senior Taylor Lawsen and Livermore High School Senior Harry Yee were awarded $1,000 per year for four years. The two scholar athletes received the scholarships at the 2016 Pedrozzi Scholar recognition event on June 2.
The scholarships are made possible by former colleagues, collaborators, and friends of Walter. They include Jay Davis, Glenn Kubiak, Art Pontau, and Rick Stulen. Jay collaborated with Walter during his career at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and Art, Glenn, and Rick worked with Walter during his career at Sandia/California. Rick remembers Walter as a pure scientist in addition to being a great leader who challenged people to perform their best.
