Dan Evans (’66 B.S.), a native of Longview, Washington, went on from ChemE to work for Standard Oil and earn an MBA from the University of Oregon. He then transformed his father-in-law’s local plumbing contractor from a 5-person company to one of the largest specialty contractors in the country. He received ChemE’s Moulton Distinguished Alumnus Award in 2012.
