The Iowa State University Foundation has presented the 2019 Order of the Knoll Emerging Philanthropist Award to David and Christine Slump. The couple, who both graduated from Iowa State in 1991, invested in the Marston Hall renovation project, and their support was recognized by naming an office on the fourth floor of the building in their honor. They have also contributed to the Student Innovation Center, which is scheduled to open in spring 2020. Additionally, they have contributed their time, expertise and funds to help fuel the dreams of students on the PrISUm Solar Car team – a student group focused on designing, racing and teaching the public about solar cars – and encouraged them to pursue new developments. David Slump is president of the Connected Services Division for Harman in Stamford, Conn., is a member of the Engineering College Industry Advisory Council, and he previously served on the Electrical and Computer Engineering Advisory Board.
