HENRY PETZ SCHOLARSHIP
Henry Petz was born in Nebraska in 1876, the eldest child of German immigrants. When he was 10, his family moved to Wyoming where they homesteaded north of Lusk. During the famous Johnson County War, young Henry worked as a ranch hand for John B. Kendrick of Sheridan. His years with Kendrick were personally rewarding, but at the age of 21 Henry returned to Lusk to record his “H” brand and start his own herd of Herefords. He and his wife Edna had two daughters and ran the home ranch until his death in 1958. His daughter, Greta Alexander, gave this scholarship in his memory.
