facility) will help Rose-Hulman achieve its goal to always be the best."
  Celebrating its 10th anniversary this fall, Hatfield Hall has become a focal point of campus and community arts activities. Another signature campus landmark sprouting from the successful Vision to be the Best campaign is the White Chapel that's on the west side of campus. It was constructed through a $1.5 million lead gift by the late John R. and Elizabeth L. White. John (ME, 1947) was president and founder of Hydro-Power Inc. Continuing the White legacy on campus have been the couple's son, Steve (ME, 1973); son-in-law, Jim Trueblood (ME, 1977); and granddaughter, Anne (Trueblood) Trobaugh (ME, 2003).
  Two endowed scholarship funds are connected to the White family: John R. and Elizabeth L. White Family Scholarship, established by family members, and John R. White Scholarship, established by John's sister, Marian Woolsey.
  One of Rose-Hulman's most successful alumni, the late Bernard "Bernie" V. Vonderschmitt (EE, 1944), also established an endowed scholarship fund that's leaving a legacy by supporting the development of future engineers. His expertise led to major advancements in integrated circuits and solid-state electronics, and his strategic vision helped Xilinx Inc., which he co-founded at age 60, become the world's largest programmable logic supplier with more than $1 billion in sales.
  Vonderschmitt's philanthropic support has paved the way for more than 100 Southern Indiana students like him to graduate from Rose-Hulman.
  Another electronics pioneer, the late Lawrence J. Giacoletto (EE, 1938), is remembered by his family through an endowed faculty chair in electrical and computer engineering. Mark A. Yoder Ph.D., was bestowed the honor this spring. It recognizes the distinguished Michigan State University professor, innovator of the groundbreaking hybrid-pi transistor model, color television pioneer, and inventor with 22 patents to his name.
  "The establishment of this endowed

chair has allowed the Giacoletto family to enshrine the legacy of Lawrence J. Giacoletto at Rose-Hulman," states Rickey N. McCurry, Vice President of Institutional Advancement. "With the completion of The "Great" Debate, Rose-   Hulman is embarking on a strategic plan to realize our collective vision for the future. It is anticipated that many new leaders will step up to make a lasting impression on the future of our great school."
