In August, the Purdue University Board of Trustees approved the named headship for the School of Nuclear Engineering. A generous gift from Capt. James F. McCarthy, Jr. and Cheryl E. McCarthy has created the named headship.
Capt. James F. McCarthy, Jr. graduated from Purdue University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nuclear Engineering in 1979, which created his foundation for a successful career in the United States Navy.
