Million-dollar gift supports scholarships

Steve Wunning, ME’73, has established a $1 million scholarship endowment at Missouri S&T: the Steven H. and Lyneve C. Wunning Scholarship Fund.

Wunning is a member of the Missouri S&T Board of Trustees, an advisory and advocacy group for university leaders.

“Going to Rolla was one of the best decisions I ever made,” says Wunning, a native of Farmington, Mo. “I received an outstanding engineering education, but also much more. Pi Kappa Alpha got me involved on campus, and taught me how to study, live and work with others from entirely different backgrounds. My parents, my college experience, and my fraternity all had an enduring impact on my personal values and beliefs.”

Wunning retired from Caterpillar in 2016 as a group president and member of the executive office after 41 years with the company. He met his wife, Lyneve, shortly after he joined the company in 1973.

In a career spanning the globe, Wunning found that colleagues worldwide were familiar with his alma mater.

“People you meet almost always ask where you went to school,” he says. “I would just say Rolla, and they invariably knew exactly where I went to school. This was true whether I was in North or South America, Europe or Asia — in places like Johannesburg, South Africa; Piracicaba, Brazil; and Perth, Australia.”
