Anne Rehbein Wiprud served the residents of Teton County as an MSU Extension Agent. She was employed with Extension at the time of her death on May 28, 1986, as a result of an auto accident that claimed both her life and that of an unborn child. She was survived by her husband, Clarence and son, Kelly. Anne’s work was focused on education and improving the lives of those she served. Anne’s concern and understanding of her clientele were admired by those who knew her. This scholarship was established based on donations in memory of Anne, so that today she is still associated with education of youth.
