Arthur Moenkhaus Engineering Scholarship
Mrs. Ruth Moenkhaus Epting created this scholarship in 1987 in memory of her late husband, Arthur, who died in that year. His influence can be found in almost every aspect of NMC"s history, from the classroom to the physical plant to the administration. Art Moenkhaus first came to NMC in 1956, to start the engineering transfer program and to teach physics. A registered civil engineer, he also served as NMC"s resident engineer, overseeing the building of West Hall, the Fine Arts Building, and the Science Building. Being a licensed pilot as well, he is credited with helping to start NMC"s flight program in the early 1970s. He was also a member of the “Quinity,” the committee of five men who ran the college in the absence of a president in 1972-73. Mr. Moenkhaus taught at NMC until the time of his death in 1987. Arthur and Ruth Moenkhaus" two children, David and Susan, also graduated from NMC.
