Ardis Hauser, Friend and Supporter of the WSU Honors College, Celebrates 100!

Ardis Hauser, Friend and Supporter of the WSU Honors College, Celebrates 100!

When Ralph Hauser (’53 Education) entered Washington State College on the GI Bill in 1949, he and his wife, Ardis, were impressed by the university, the educational value one receives as a student, and the WSU community of Cougars. It grew into the passion of two lifetimes.

Ralph built admirable careers as an industrial arts teacher, and later as a business owner, in Lacey, Wash. Ardis worked as a children’s librarian and school teacher. They became more engaged with the university through their children, Carl (’75 BS Computer Science) and Kathy (Emtman) (’77 Home Economics). The siblings enrolled in music camps as teenagers and then as undergraduates in the then WSU Honors Program. In 2014, Ralph passed away at age 92 in Pullman, where he and Ardis had lived for nearly 20 years. The town is also home to Carl, Kathy and their families.
