The Barb Robbins Wildlife Scholarship
The Barb Robbins Wildlife Scholarship was established to support
veterinary wildlife education and to honor one of the college's most
esteemed staff members.
Barb Robbins worked in the Office of Student Services at the college for 35
years until her retirement in August 2009. She was involved in all aspects
of student academics from maintaining student records, scheduling classes,
and solving curriculum issues, to providing a home base for students where
they could seek help and advice.
"I was happy if I knew I made a veterinary student's life easier," says
Robbins. "Helping students every day made my job very satisfying."
Barb and her husband Charlie, a professor in the Department of Natural
Resource Sciences, came to WSU after Charlie was offered a one year
position. Thirty-five years later, the couple has made their home on the
Palouse. Barb enjoys riding horses, traveling, numerous outdoor activities,
and raising her new Boxer puppy.
Please join us in celebrating Barb Robbins' lifetime of achievement by
becoming a part of this effort.
