Ken and Kitty Decker are a true Boilermaker family. Both come from a long line of alums and friends of Purdue. They passed their love of Purdue on to their two daughters, who graduated from Purdue and married Purdue graduates. The Decker family also understands the importance of giving back, as exemplified by their numerous gifts to Purdue.

The Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering is both fortunate and honored to be the beneficiary of a gift from this fine family. Their gift establishes the Havel/Decker Undergraduate Scholarship in Biomedical Engineering, the first undergraduate scholarship to be established at the School, to be awarded to a deserving sophomore or junior each year.

"We very much appreciate our alumni and friends who give to the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering, and are especially pleased when such gifts have a direct positive impact on our BME students," says George Wodicka, head of the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering. "The Deckers' gift not only honors family members, it helps us recruit and retain the best biomedical engineering students in the world."

Our thanks to the Deckers and all alumni and friends who support the Weldon School. Your support is the base upon which we build the future.
