HOVEY FAMILY SCHOLARSHIP
This scholarship recognizes three generations of a pioneer family in southeastern Wyoming. W.A. (Will) Hovey, wife Ethel, and son Arthur proved up on a homestead in Goshen county in 1911. Arthur and his wife, Ruth, added their own holdings to the family operation. They raised Hereford cattle, were active in community affairs, and encouraged their children in 4-H, sports, and educational pursuits. Son Bill (W.W.), Ag ’57, and his wife Bev (Dawson), College of Business Secretarial Science ’54, lived in Cheyenne, where Bill devoted over 30 years to the Wyoming Department of Agriculture. Daughter Donna Beth, Home Economics ’51, and her husband Howard Downer, Ag ’50, spent their professional lives as professors and administrators in secondary and higher education.
