Mahendra and Surjit Bhangoo and Family Endowment

Awarded to students majoring in Agronomy in the Department of Plant Science

This endowment fund was established by the family to honor their mother, Surjit, and father, Dr. Mahendra S. Bhangoo. Dr. Bhangoo taught in the plant science department as a professor of agronomy from December of 1976 to may of 1993. Dr. Bhangoo's thoughts regarding his relationship with Fresno State are fondly recalled through this quote:

"I came to this country in 1951 as a young man in pursuit of a dream. I attended what was then called Fresno State College, as a student and would return as a professor. The friendship and compassion of persons like Dean of Agriculture, Lloyd Dowler, Professor Fred Roullard, and Registar of the University, Mrs. Wight, were instrumental to my success. it has been and continues to be an honor and a privilege to give back to the institution and community that has been so good to me for so many years."
