Graduation Year: 

Don Watenpaugh (’84 M.S.), Aledo, opened the business Studio Videnda LLC, which offers custom, data-driven graphic, literary and musical art, with his daughter Kendra Houston. Before starting the business, Don earned his doctorate at the University of California at Davis and worked in a variety of roles, including manager of the space physiology laboratory at the NASA Ames Research Center; guest scientist at a medical center in Copenhagen, Denmark; assistant professor at the UNT Health Science Center; a research scientist at the Naval Submarine Medical Research Laboratory; and the director of a sleep medical clinic and laboratory in Fort Worth. Although Don has traveled around the world, the home base of UNT left such an impression that he named his son Denton (’11).
