AWRI Newsletter #28: March 2004

Each spring, the Annis Water Resources Institute announces a competition for D.J. Angus-Scientech Educational Foundation summer internships. These positions are made possible by a gift from the D.J. Angus-Scientech Educational Foundation, located in Indianapolis, Indiana. D.J. Angus was a pioneer in early electrical engineering and manufacturing, and his inventions, especially highly sensitive continuous-recording instruments, were a major factor in the success of his company, Esterline-Angus of Indianapolis. Donald Angus also donated his 50-foot steel hulled vessel to Grand Valley State College in 1965, kick-starting an aquatics program that eventually matured into the Annis Water Resources Institute. The steel hulled vessel was replaced in 1986 by the new Angus vessel, which is now berthed in Grand Haven, and along with the W.G. Jackson in Muskegon, forms the vessel fleet at AWRI. This year, I am pleased to announce that three new students have been selected as D.J. Angus-Scientech interns: Sarah Barnhard, Robert Barrette, and Bradley Robinson. We welcome these interns to AWRI and look forward to their contributions this summer.
