Melville, William H. and Stella M. Scholarship

Posted by nitcy | February 28, 2013

William and Stella Melville are life-long Washington State University Cougars. From their earliest moments, they have enjoyed their association with WSU and continue to make the most of their WSU connections and activities. Bill was a student at WSU and Bill and Stella have been Cougar parents, Cougar Club members, President’s Associates and more. They organize family and friends around Cougar athletic and alumni events, often following the Cougars to home and away venues. Their warmth and enthusiasm as WSU ambassadors is evident to all whom cross their path. Their children, Dean and Milly Kay and her husband Bill, share their Cougar passion. Bill and Stella have farmed in Lamont, Washington for over fifty years and during that time have benefited from research conducted by the College of Agriculture and Home Economics at Washington State University. In loving recognition for their dedicated support and passion for WSU, their children Milly Kay and Bill, establish the William H. and Stella M. Melville Scholarship Endowment.
