Time Zone: America/Denver
Local Time: Thursday, October 7, 2021 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Karen M. Swindler (ChemE ’88) had more than 25 years of experience in the chemical industry and was one of the only women in charge of manufacturing for an S&P Fortune 500 company, LyondellBasell. She credited South Dakota Mines for giving her a practical education, enabling her success in life. She gave back to the university through volunteering: recruiting students; presenting to university classes and organizations, including as keynote speaker at the regional AIChE conference; serving on the Chemical Engineering Advisory Board; and serving on the Alumni Association Board of Directors, including a term as president from September 2017 until she passed away in July 2018. A generous gift made by Lee Swindler and his family will honor Karen’s memory as well as her contributions to the field of chemical engineering and South Dakota Mines.
