Webb, Everett M. and Louise Ott Scholarship

Everett M. Webb and his wife, Louise, were both WSU alumni (1924). For 40 years, Mr. Webb served as a teacher, administrator and coordinator, in both public schools and at WSU. He created the Vocational Agriculture Department at Dayton High the same year he graduated. From 1931-36, he was Superintendent of Schools and taught Vocational Agriculture in Fairfield. From 1936 until his retirement in 1964, he was Teacher Educator and State Supervisor of Vocational Agriculture and Education at WSU. He served students, teachers, and administrators throughout the State, and helped mold thousands of students through affiliations with FFA. His interest in young people is shown by his activities in the Presbyterian Church, American Legion, Tau Kappa Epsilon, and the numerous educational and agricultural honoraries in which he holds membership. Mrs. Webb has been active throughout her adult life in Campfire, the Presbyterian Church, American Legion Auxiliary, Girls State and PTA. During her association with Kappa Kappa Gamma, she has served as catalogue advisor, treasurer of the Building Corporation, Alumnae Newsletter Editor for over 35 years. She received her 50 year membership pin from her sorority in 1971. Her service to Future Farmers of America resulted in her being presented a certificate of appreciation by that organization in 1969. This fund was started by Everett and Louise’s children and their spouses, the following of whom have graduated from WSU: Elizabeth Webb Clark, D. Girard Clark, Dorothy Webb Loan, Raymond W. Loan, and Richard E. Webb.
