The Weiler family and Iowa State faculty and staff during the ribbon-cutting for the Weiler Laboratory

Cardinal and gold runs in the blood for the Weilers

When Patrick Weiler graduated from Iowa State in 1980 with a degree in agricultural engineering, he began a tradition of support for his alma matter. The legacy now spans two generations of the Weiler family, including Megan (Weiler) Green (’06 finance), Joel Weiler (’10 nutr sci) and Katelyn (Weiler) Freeseman (’12 civil engr). As Iowa State alums, the Weilers said they are proud to help support future generations of Cyclones engineers.
