The Chimbel Family Scholarship honors Joseph and LaVonne (Long) Chimbel, who met at Northwest Missouri State University in the late 1960s, married in 1971 and both graduated in the early 1970s before embarking on careers in sales and human resources, respectively. They were both first-generation college students who studied psychology and sociology. LaVonne Chimbel died in 2010. The gift was established by their son, Aaron, and daughter-in-law, Bethanne, in 2021.
