Allegra Sundstrom has been selected as a recipient of an Auvil Scholars Fellowship for the 2016/2017 academic year. This fund was created by a 2006 gift from the estates of Grady and Lillie Auvil, Wenatchee tree-fruit entrepreneurs. Grady Auvil believed in the importance of education and research. He was instrumental in establishing the Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission in 1968, and his work introduced many new fruits and innovations beneficial to growers. Throughout his life, he and his wife contributed generously to the WSU community, and this fund serves as a continuation of that legacy. Congratulations to all of the undergraduates who received research awards this year!
