Mack C. Olson Memorial Angus Scholarship

Tragically killed in an automobile accident on December 10, 2007, Mack C. Olson's legacy will be carried on in perpetuity in the Angus breed through the Mack C. Olson Memorial Scholarship Endowment Fund. Spearheaded by his numerous friends and family members, a fund drive resulted in more than $17,000 being raised from in-memory gifts and the proceeds from an embryo auction at the National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colo. Mack was a member of the American Angus Association, Montana Angus Association, Western Montana Angus Association and director for the Western Montana Stockgrowers Association. The Olson family raises Angus cattle in the beautiful Mission Valley at St. Ignatius, Mt. The first scholarship was awarded at the 2008 National Junior Angus Show. A different recipient will receive the scholarship each year. The Angus Foundation Undergraduate Scholarship Program application will be used to select the Mack C. Olson Memorial Angus Scholarship recipient. Recipients may also receive other scholarships from the Angus Foundation or local, state, regional and national Angus-related entities.
