Special Notes Arlyn Gravunder worked as a custodian at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire from 1967-1989. He was a fan of all student and sports, especially basketball. He was a charter member of the Backcourt Club for basketball and instrumental in getting bus trips for adult fans traveling to away basketball games where fans had as good of a time on the bus as at the game. Later, Arlyn became a true fan of women's volleyball. He was always ready to show future students and families around the campus. Upon his death in 1989, his family established the Arlyn W. and Sandra L. Gravunder Scholarship to honor his love of UW-Eau Claire students and athletics. Sandra Gravunder received her bachelor's and master's degrees from UW-Eau Claire and taught in the Business Education Department at Chippewa Valley Technical College from 1969-2001.
