Stutz-McDonald Memorial Scholarship. The award, named for the mother of Clarke-Doane and Reynolds and the sister of Stutz-Baker, went to Wyckoff for her devotion to environmental engineering. Susan E. Stutz-McDonald graduated from UT in the 1970s, becoming a pioneering female engineer in civil and environmental engineering.

Kristen Wyckoff, a doctoral student in civil and environmental engineering, is the first recipient of the Susan E. Stutz-McDonald Scholarship.

The scholarship was created in honor of Stutz-McDonald—who had a love of the environment, engineering, and UT, her alma mater. It will be awarded annually to a deserving graduate-level female engineering student with a primary focus in environmental or wastewater engineering.

“I completely identified with Susan’s mission and goals,” said Wyckoff. “My research interests include water and wastewater treatment, storm runoff, and microbiology of water runoff, which all fit in well with her career and environmental focus.”
