Kenneth K. Damgaard Scholarship

Kenneth K. Damgaard

Kenneth K. Damgaard (1939-2012) was a licensed civil engineer and professional land surveyor with 35 years of experience in public service: 24 years with the Arizona Department of Transportation, 3 years with Pima County Department of Transportation, and 8 years with the City of Tucson. He was a member of the Asphalt Recycling and Reclaiming Association and served a decade as their Affiliate Chairman. Ken was an avid supporter of asphalt recycling and an inspiration to many generations of engineers and construction professionals. He graduated from the University of Arizona with a B.S. in Civil Engineering in 1964 and received an MBA from Northern Arizona University in 1982.

To honor Mr. Damgaard’s legacy, the Kenneth K. Damgaard Scholarship is awarded to undergraduate and graduate students in the College of Engineering that show promise to become true stewards of the natural and the built environment through their current scholarly activities and achievements.
