HINES FAMILY SCHOLARSHIP
The Hines family has operated and lived on the Hines family ranch in Campbell County since 1900. A Gillette, Wyoming native, John graduated from Campbell County High School and later attended the University of Wyoming College of Agriculture and Natural Resources. After his discharge from the army in 1960, John Hines returned to Wyoming and took over the operation of the family ranch. John has been, and continues to be, actively involved in Campbell County and Wyoming’s agriculture industry. He is a past President of the Wyoming Wool Growers Association and has served as a member of the Wyoming State Legislature since 1984. A long-time supporter of education, the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and the University of Wyoming, John has supported the Wheel of Brands scholarship program, helps sponsor the annual Ag Weekend BBQ, is an active member of the Cowboy Joe Club, and in 2005, established the Hines Family Scholarship to honor his family’s long-standing involvement with agriculture.
