Keith and Thyra Thomson Honors Convocation

A Celebration of Academic Achievement

Keith and Thyra Thomson were married in 1939 and became one of Wyoming's most notable couples. Recognized for exemplary service and dedication to the University of Wyoming, Keith and Thyra Thomson "paid it forward" before the term was coined. In 1960, Keith was elected United States senator, but, before he could assume office, he had a heart attack and died. In 1997, Thyra, along with her family and friends, established an endowment to ensure that academically successful College of Arts and Sciences undergraduates be recognized annually for their achievements. Thyra died in June 2013, after having served for several years on the College of Arts and Sciences board of Visitors.
