Emeritus Breakfast 2015: A Time of Recognition
In early April, many of the CNS’s current and emeritus faculty members came together for a breakfast – and, more importantly, a chance to recognize the important roles our former leaders play and the many ways they enrich the college.

It was a morning of catching up, of welcoming this year’s new faculty emeriti – Dr. Carl Patton of physics and Dr. Ken Klopfenstein of mathematics – and remembering those faculty leaders who have passed on. Dean Nerger also introduced four new funds named for emeritus faculty, all of which are excellent choices for CNS friends wishing to recognize such important scholars:
- The George Splittgerber Scholarship in Chemistry, established by chemistry alumnus Dr. Glenn Boutilier, who wanted to honor Dr. Splittgerber and his role as an incredible mentor, adviser, and friend.
- The Grit Scholarship in Computer Science, created to honor the legacy of Dale and Lou Grit, who were both longtime educators in the community.
- The Michael Elliott Scholarship in Chemistry, established by Elliott’s friends, relatives, students, and colleagues.
- The Robert B. France Fellowship in Computer Science, recently established with many gifts coming in from all over the world to honor the late Dr. France.
CSU photography was there to capture many of the best moments.
And yes, by popular demand, there were mimosas.
