Michigan Engineering Adjunct Professor Frederick W. Buckman (BSE SE ’66) and Marion K. Buckman (Dent.Hyg.Cert. ’80) have endowed the John C. Lee Fellowship Fund.

This gift honors an outstanding teacher and scholar, who after more than forty years, continues to build on his many contributions to the field of nuclear science and engineering. It will be used to support graduate students in the Department of Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences. This gift qualifies for the University’s Michigan Matching Initiative for Student Support.

Fred is chairman and CEO of Powerlink Transmission Company, a member of the NERS Advisory board and former CEO of Consumers Energy, PacifiCorp and The Shaw Power Group. “It is a pleasure to recognize the contributions of John Lee as an educator, a researcher and a friend. Marion and I are proud to thank the University for all it has done for our family by establishing this fund,” said Professor Buckman.
