Bob Kepley/ Marian Kepley
The permanent W.R. Kepley Scholarship Endowment was established in honor of the late W.R. Kepley Jr., who was an NC State engineering alumnus. W.R. Kepley Jr. graduated in 1959 with a bachelors degree in mechanical engineering and had a very successful career at RJ Reynolds for 31 years. Bob Kepley graduated in 1979 with a bachelors degree in electrical engineering and in 1981 with a masters degree in electrical engineering. He has had a successful career with a major satellite communications company.
N. C. State was instrumental in preparing my father and me for a successful career in the field of engineering. Following in my father’s footsteps, and in his name, I established this scholarship to support N. C. State in doing the same for others.
