Richard A. Croxall '63, Mechanical Engineering
Richard A. Croxall is an Engineering graduate who has achieved possibly the highest position at Northrop Grumman Corporation (NGC) of any Cal Poly Pomona alumnus. He had a distinguished 39-year career at TRW (now NGC) and became Vice President, Mission Assurance and Chief Engineer before he retired last year.
On August 2, 2006, he established the $15,000 Richard Croxall Engineering Scholarship Fund. It is intended to assist outstanding undergraduate students enrolled in the College of Engineering. Richard has also been chosen as the College's featured donor for the upcoming 2006 - 2007 Annual Report of Giving, entitled Work in Progress.
Richard Croxall is truly a Cal Poly man, but his heart is split between the Pomona and San Luis Obispo universities. He graduated from Cal Poly Pomona in 1963 with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. His daughter-in-law, Amy, also received her B.A. in Graphic Design from Cal Poly Pomona. However, Richard's son, Robert, earned his B. S. in Finance and his M.S. in Industrial Technology at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. His son Daniel also graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, receiving both his B.A. and M.A. in English, as did another daughter-in-law, Laura, who graduated with a B.S. in Agricultural Business.
