This scholarship was created in 1996 to commemorate Dr. Rue Jensen's contribution to veterinary medicine and honor his work at the Wyoming State Veterinary Laboratory. It is awarded to promising undergraduates and incoming UW freshmen who have declared a major or option in pre-veterinary medicine. Preference is given to students who have the scholastic qualities and personal attributes to become effective, humane veterinarians.
Dr. Rue Jensen served at Colorado State University as a pathologist, dean of the college of veterinary medicine, vice-president of research, and director of the Agricultural Experiment Station. Rue then came to Wyoming and served for many years as a veterinary pathologist at the Wyoming State Veterinary Laboratory. In a lifetime of dedicated service to the veterinary profession, Rue authored hundreds of research articles and first described many of the diseases faced in agriculture. Rue passed away November 28, 2001, at the age of 89.
This scholarship was established in memory of Noreen Ring, an Irish nurse who had a deep affection for open spaces and animals of all kinds, particularly wildlife. Both of her children work in North America, one of them in Wyoming. Preference is given to pre-veterinary, medical microbiology, and graduate students in the Department of Veterinary Sciences.
