Pat Gibbons
Retired WashU Physics Professor, Habitat House Leader

Pat is a retired physics professor who works with Habitat for Humanity as a House Leader. Pat uses his affiliation and experience with WashU and Habitat to bridge the gap between WashU and the surrounding St. Louis community and actively encourages those around him to volunteer. As Katie Harder, Resource Development Manager for Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis, explained in her nomination, “His warm demeanor, inclusive nature, and unending patience with new volunteers has converted many one-time volunteers into build site ‘regulars’.” He is also known to enjoy contemplating the diffraction from a quasicrystal.
