Ursula L. Kepler -- 1995 Outstanding Alumna
Bachelor of Science - 1943 - Zoology
Ursula Kepler recently received a pin for 60 years of service to the Girl Scouts. It is a symbol of her active and selfless career of helping others. After receiving a B. S. degree in Zoology from UW in 1943, she attended Yale, married Charles Kepler and returned to Cheyenne to become an S. P. 5 medical technologist. During her time with the Girl Scouts, she has served in many positions and is currently working for the National Science Partnership for Girl Scouts and Science Museums.
Kepler has been active in the Red Cross for 58 years, teaching swimming and lifesaving. As chapter chair during the devastating fires of 1988, she coordinated Red Cross efforts. For 15 years, she organized the annual Christmas Toy Program for Cody, and the annual bird count for the Audubon Society. She works to involve retirees in bird watching as a means of encouraging them to remain active and interested in life, as she is herself.
"Ursula Kepler is a peerless community supporter in the town of Cody and an absolutely remarkable volunteer for young people." -Peter K. Simpson UW Vice President.
