Stella McKinstry Scholarship – 2018-2019


Stella McKinstry was a devoted friend and supporter of Family and Consumer Sciences for many years. When she retired in 2006 she was honored with an award from Extension for her 60 year career – the longest on record. Stella began working for Extension in 1946 shortly after her graduation from Colorado State University with a bachelor’s degree in home economics. She chose to come to Wyoming because the starting annual salary for Extension agents was $2,100 – a full $300 more than her home state. Wyoming received more than its money’s worth from Stella over the years. She had a zest for life, an attitude toward service, and a joy of learning. Describing herself as a life-long learner, Stella said “You never work a day in your life if you enjoy what you are doing.”
Upon her passing in 2016, additional funds from her estate were added to her scholarship fund creating the largest scholarship endowment in the department. This gift will be a wonderful way to recognize all of Stella’s accomplishments for many years to come.
To be eligible for this scholarship award, an applicant must be majoring in one of the degree programs offered by the Family and Consumer Sciences Department, and be in good academic standing. Preference will be given to applicants who have participated in 4-H youth programs.
