Leaving a Lasting Legacy – Supporting Minority Engineers The AIChE Foundation is deeply grateful to Gregory and Allyson, children of the late Henry T. and Melinda C. Brown for including AIChE in Henry’s obituary. The Brown family kindly requested contributions to be made to the Henry T. and Melinda C. Brown Endowment for the Education of Underrepresented Minority Chemical Engineers in honor of their parents. Their thoughtful decision resulted in nearly $10,000 in tribute gifts from family, friends and fellow peers elevating the endowment total funds raised to $174,000. The Brown Endowment is a global effort to promote inclusiveness in the profession by awarding academic scholarships to support the education of future minority chemical engineers, in perpetuity. Henry was an AIChE Fellow whose devotion to equity for minority engineers made an indelible impression on the life of the Institute and the countless chemical engineers who he mentored and encouraged. Henry, along with Gerry Lessells, first conceived outreach initiatives for underrepresented engineers nearly 30 years ago with the formation of the Minority Affairs Committee (MAC). Since then, the MAC community has grown and established multiple activities to engage engineers throughout their careers. He guided and mentord MAC’s leaders and AIChE members throughout his life. We welcome your support in positively impacting many more engineers as they enter the chemical engineering profession. GIVE NOW Related Content: Feb 20, 2020 AIChE Pays Tribute to Henry T.
