Keith '52 and Mary Ann Kvenvolden
Keith '52 and Mary Ann Kvenvolden established the George T. Merideth Award for Early Leadership in Geophysical Engineering in 2012 to acknowledge outstanding graduating students in geophysics. Named in honor of Keith's favorite professor, G.T. Merideth, the endowed gift is a special way of saying 'thanks' and of honoring his memory. The couple has also provided support for the Mines Band and Mines music programs. When Keith attended Mines and played the sousaphone in the band, music was an afterthought. Now, music is a part of the Mines elective curriculum. Through the financial support of the Mines Band, Mary Ann and Keith are expressing their conviction that music is an important facet of a well-rounded and well-grounded education.
