Family of the Year

Congratulations to our 2022 Family of the Year, the Myers Family!

The Myers family has been named our 2022 Cyclone Family of the Year! Join us for Cyclone Family Weekend to celebrate them. 

Paige Myers (junior, Chemical Engineering) nominated her family because of their commitment to Iowa State and the support they have shown her in her first two years as a Cyclone. Paige is the fourth generation on her mom's side to attend Iowa State (great-grandmother Dorothy attended for Home Economics in 1940-1941 and grandfather Dennis graduated with a degree in Industrial Arts in 1969). Her father Martin (Computer Science, '95) proposed to mother Wendy (Elementary Education, '95) at Reiman Gardens during a home football game in 1996, and they followed tradition by kissing under the Campanile and walking around Lake Laverne. Martin and his 8 siblings all graduated from Iowa State, and between them they had at least one sibling in attendance for 23 years straight. Paige says, "Normal DNA is made up of AGCT, but my DNA is ISU because of my family's commitment to education at Iowa State."

Congratulations to the Myers family (below from left to right: Paige, Martin, Wendy, Craig, and Madison), who exemplify what it means to be CYCLONE PROUD!
