Armin W. Arndt, Jr.

Dr. Arndt joined the faculty of EWU in 1972 and received his Ph.D. in developmental psychology in 1973. He was an outstanding professor known for how much he cared for his students, and his love to facilitate their academic learning. Dr. Arndt served on many academic committees and M.A. degree committees for students in a variety of fields. He was always eager to support projects and programs that furthered the fulfillment of students' professional expertise and personal happiness. Much of his greatest life satisfaction came from mentoring and learning from his students, especially those in the Children's Studies program. On April 26th, 2008 Dr. Arndt passed away from a terminal illness. This scholarship is a way to honor his memory and rich contributions which aided in the culmination of this program.
