La Jollans recognized by UCSD chancellor
Two La Jolla couples, Bob and Betty Beyster, and Peter and Peggy Preuss, were among the recipients of the 2012 UC San Diego Chancellor’s Medals. The Chancellor’s Medal is one of the highest honors bestowed by UC San Diego to honor exceptional service in support of the university’s mission.
The Beysters became Chancellor’s Associates in 1977, and have since invested time, insight and resources in the university, including the founding of Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) in 1969, which has grown to a FORTUNE 500® company that delivers scientific and technical products and services.
UCSD alumnus Peter Preuss and wife Peggy played a key role in the establishment of The Preuss School — a charter middle and high school on the university’s campus for motivated, low-income students whose parents have not graduated from college.
Since the Chancellor’s Medal was established in 2000, it has been given to a select group of individuals whose long-standing contributions and involvement with UCSD have supported students and furthered research, helped the campus and local communities grow and prosper, and inspired the community and enhanced the quality of life for San Diegans.
