CORVALLIS - A gift from friends and family of F. Gilbert Lamb has established the F. Gilbert Lamb Food Science Scholarship endowment at Oregon State University to encourage students from McLoughlin and other eastern Oregon high schools to pursue food science careers.
The scholarship honors "Gib" Lamb, a 1933 graduate of McLoughlin High in Milton-Freewater, and a successful business leader in the food processing industry. He died in 1996.
A $1,000 scholarship will be awarded annually to a student planning to enroll in OSU's Department of Food Science and Technology in the College of Agricultural Sciences. Students are eligible to receive the scholarship for four years if they maintain their grades and commitment to a career in food science.
Highest preference and consideration for the scholarship will go to students who are McLoughlin High seniors at the time of application. The award will be based on scholastic achievement and community involvement.
Applications for the 1997 scholarship are due April 15. For application information, contact Jan Carlson, Department of Food Science and Technology, Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR 97331, (1-800-823-2357).
