EARL AND MINNIE LYNCH AGRICULTURE SCHOLARSHIP

Earl and Minnie Lynch homesteaded in Wyoming in 1936 on a ranch in Weston County 50 miles from Newcastle. For over 50 years Earl was a National weather observer and received an award for his service. The Lynch’s were one of the last people to homestead in the state of Wyoming. The Lynch’s son-in-law and daughter Jim and Jill Anderson have established this scholarship to honor the Lynch’s life-long involvement in and commitment to the ranching business in Wyoming. Jill’s brother Patt Lynch and his son Troy Lynch and his wife Janeice and their sons Tyler and Travis continue on the ranch today where they raise black angus cattle.
