Patricia C. and Eugene E. Youngman Endowed Science Scholarship

Placeholder image

Pat (Chamber) Youngman grew up near Yakima, Washington, during the Depression. A $500 inheritance from her grandfather made the dream of a college education into reality for Pat. Pat and Gene met at WSU and were married the same week they graduated in 1943:  Pat with a BS in Bacteriology and Public Health, and Gen with a Bachelor’s degree in Business. Gene began a life career with General Mills in Spokane, with various transfers until they settled in Palo Alto, California. As the family moved, Pat worked as a hospital medical technician, bacteriologist for Darigold, VA medical technician, and doctor’s assistant. Gene died in 1976. Pat moved to Anacortes and became instrumental in the propagation of wild plants at the WSU Mount Vernon Research and Extension Center. Pat passed away in February 2010.
