William S. Anheuser

The Triple A Ranch Scholarship program was established by William S. Anheuser shortly before his death at age 98 to provide financial support and a vote of confidence to area students who are working to improve themselves and their community through advanced education. The name of the scholarship recalls Mr. Anheuser’s ranch in south central Missouri where he raised prized Aberdeen-Angus cattle and learned a great deal about life and the value of hard work. Mr. Anheuser hoped to support students he described as “pulling themselves up by their bootstraps.”
