Topeka, Kan.Washburn University Institute of Technology (Washburn Tech) has named Aaron Ramsey the Bruce Pfeiffer Outstanding Plumbing Student of the Year. Ramsey, a postsecondary student from Topeka, Kan., is part of the inaugural class of the Plumbing Technology program at Washburn Tech East. 

    The award is given in honor of the late Bruce A.

    “Aaron was chosen for this award due to his professionalism, participation in class and willingness to learn,” said Quentin Ouellette, plumbing instructor, Washburn Tech. “Bruce set an example through his hard work, integrity and dedication to community service. Aaron is a young man who will follow that example and impact others as he embarks on his own career.”
