Noel de Nevers Memorial Scholar Award

Posted on Saturday, February 2, 2019

Professor Emeritus Noel de Nevers, who died Jan 4, 2019 at his home in Salt Lake City, was a respected teacher and good friend to the ARCS Community. His wife, Klancy, is a founding member of the ARCS Foundation Utah Chapter and Noel was the personal friend of many ARCS members. His accomplishments were many and are outlined in detail on the memorial page at the University of Utah. He was the author of several popular text books as well as many articles in the field of chemical engineering, was a Fullbright Scholar and ably represented the Department of Chemical Engineering and the University of Utah on a wide variety of committees. But to Noel's friends he was an outdoorsman and leader and spent many wonderful days in Utah's parks and other wild places. He was thrilled to have named Private Arch in Arches National Park after being the first to officially report it to the U.S. Geologic Survey.  

ARCS Foundation Utah Chapter would like to recognize the legacy of Professor Noel de Nevers by presenting a scholar award in his name in the 2019-2020 academic year. Because of the generous donation of one of our members we are already half way to the full award amount of $15,000. All donations in Noel's name will be used for this scholar award with any donations in excess of $15,000 being carried forward to subsequent years. Donations of any amount may be sent to ARCS Foundation Utah Chapter, 1338 S Foothill Dr, #324, Salt Lake City, UT 84108. All donors will be recognized on the chapter website and at the Scholar Awards Luncheon October 2019.
