Fontana Herald News — Colleagues at Cal State San Bernardino recall biology professor Richard Fehn as a caring and dedicated instructor known for his passion for teaching and his commitment to student research.
Fehn, who was raised in Fontana and later moved to Highland before passing away in 2007, was remembered in a way that fellow faculty members in the CSUSB biology department felt would best pay tribute to him — the awarding of the inaugural Richard Fehn Memorial Scholarship in early December.
The inaugural scholarship was awarded to Lowell Iporac, a biology major with a 3.8 grade point average and an impressive record of research, said Biology Professor Chair Mike Chao, who added that Iporac’s goal is to pursue a doctorate in ecology and marine biology.
