MILWAUKEE - Chicago entrepreneur Avi Shaked and his wife, Dr. Babs Waldman, have pledged $1 million to fund engineering scholarships at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM), where Shaked is an alumnus.

MILWAUKEE - Chicago entrepreneur Avi Shaked and his wife, Dr. Babs Waldman, have pledged $1 million to fund engineering scholarships at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM), where Shaked is an alumnus.
Shaked ('80 BS Electrical Engineering) is CEO and owner of Onward Technologies, a computer firm based in Chicago that provides computer infrastructure to corporate America nationwide that includes: sales of hardware and software, implementation and ongoing support, consulting and custom software development.
Shaked had received a scholarship while attending UWM and wanted to return the favor for others enrolled in the College of Engineering & Applied Science (CEAS).
"Avi Shaked and Babs Waldman's generosity will keep a vital source of assistance available to high-achieving students," says UWM Chancellor Michael R. Lovell.
"Avi Shaked's generosity did great things for me, my education, and now my career."
UWM Senior Elizabeth Wendt says the support gave her the freedom to take advantage of new educational opportunities, including participating in the UWM branch of Tau Beta Pi (national engineering honor society) and working on a research project with one of her professors.
"It is an honor for us to renew our commitment to the engineering students," says Shaked. "UWM made such a difference in my life, and we feel very fortunate to be in a position to help these students. Nothing gives us more pleasure than meeting the scholars personally and knowing that our support is making a positive difference in their lives."
Shaked emigrated from Israel in 1975 and joined a friend in Milwaukee who already was enrolled at UWM. After graduating, Shaked joined IBM, but soon saw a future in personal computers and left to form his own company.
