The Hujsak Scholarship was established by Mary and Ann, daughters of Dorothy and Karol Hujsak, as a memorial to their parents and their late father’s dedication and enthusiasm for the engineering profession.  Karol, a chemical engineer, was a long-time member of the Engineers’ Society of  Tulsa.  He began his career in Tulsa with Stanolind and retired from Amoco, then founded his own company, HYCO.  He retired a second time at the age of 89 prior to his death in 2005.

The two Kilmer Scholarships were established by Jim Kilmer and his wife Glenda, in appreciation for the excellent engineering education he received with the aid of others.  Jim, a chemical engineer, was a long-time member of the Engineers’ Society of Tulsa and a past President.  He was a founding member of the Tulsa Engineering Foundation.  His career has included working for Stanolind, Amoco and Williams Natural Gas.  He passed away in 2010. Glenda has served in leadership roles in Tulsa City-County Libraries as well as Friends of Libraries in Oklahoma.
