Bob Kennedy Memorial Award

The Bob Kennedy Memorial Award was established at the same time as the Chris Greene Memorial Award. Mr. Kennedy attended UM from 1971 to 1976, graduating with a B.S. in Forestry. He was very active in the Forestry Club and the Foresters’ Ball. He was described as “always ready to pull a practical joke or do something crazy, like help hang the Foresters’ Ball sign from the UM smokestack.” He died while working for the Weyerhaeuser Timber Company in Coos Bay, Oregon. The award is designated for a junior or returning senior in Forest Resources Management and is based on financial need, dedication to the profession of forestry, and strength in timber management.
