Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Roger Stephenson


Two weeks after graduation I joined the first of several bar bands and drummed throughout Iowa and surrounding states for the next five years (Rick Van Doren played keyboards in two of those bands).

In 1974 I enrolled at UNI in the music program and married (Kathy Baker, AHS Ď71). At UNI I learned that music as a lifetime career wasnít for me, and when I paid attention and did the work, classes and specifically math were enjoyable!

I transferred into the ISU engineering program in 1975. By 1985 I had a BS in Civil Engineering, and MS and PhD in Sanitary Engineering (now known as Environmental Engineering that includes water/wastewater, industrial/hazardous waste, solid waste, and remediation). During that time had two kids - Meagan and Mike.

Moved to Southern California in August 1985. Traffic, too many people, and expensive housing. But itís easy to adjust to the winters, there are no mosquitos, there are mountains close by that are higher than grain elevators (10,700 ft Mt Baldy is only seven miles away as the crow flies/30 min. drive and thatís a good place for the snow to be in the winter), and the kids forgot about Iowa. All those people generate wastewater and with little rain business was good. So, Iím still here in a small city of 25,000 northeast of LA up against the San Gabriel Mountain foothills called La Verne. I wonder why that reminds me of a lake?

I started easing into retirement in 2014 from the same engineering firm I started with in 1985 based out of Pasadena that grew from 600 to over 6,000 during that time. My specialty was wastewater treatment for nutrient removal and water reuse. I led planning, design and construction efforts for large projects in Southern California and Nevada and had a hand in many other projects throughout the US and beyond.

In 2016 I retired from my 23-year side-gig teaching senior and graduate water/wastewater engineering classes at USC.

For the last 10 years Iíve been with Karen. She has South Dakota roots but grew up out here. Our kids and grandkids are close by (3 and 2 for her, 2 and 3 for me) and thereís plenty that we chose to do when we want to. Year-around golf is good but need to share the course with deer, coyotes, and an occasional bear or bobcat. Our Labradors get too much attention. There are always home improvements that I like to do myself but didnít have the time. Concerts, national parks, fun cities along the coast and elsewhere, wineries, Disneyland (yes, still kids at heart), hiking trails just up the street, Ö and more TBD!
