This is Bruce Musky and his wife Evelyn. Bruce is an alumni from the UW-Madison Mechanical Engineering Department and has maintained a relationship with the university since his graduation day. During his junior year, Bruce and his team designed a wheelchair specifically for Vietnam veterans. He was promptly offered a job by one of Wisconsin's corporate sponsors. Since then, Bruce has been working with the same company for thirty plus years. The Muskys give back through generous donations to the engineering department and alumni weekends with the marching band. Did I mention that Bruce also played tenor saxophone in the UW marching band? His plaque is hanging in the Mechanical Engineering Building on campus. As an engineering student myself, I hope to build a legacy like this after building my career. #questival
