Sarah Huber Foster Scholarship for Wildlife Biology

Friends and family of Sarah Huber Foster have set-up this fund to provide scholarship awards to students in the wildlife biology program in the School of Natural Resources in the College of Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources.

Sarah Huber was born on July 30, 1991 to Chuck and Vicki Huber.  She grew up in Arnold, Missouri and loved nothing more than to spend time on her Great Aunt and Uncle’s farm near Festus, Missouri.  She always said she could just sit in the middle of a hay field and be happy.  She was in love with everything to do with the outdoors, especially spending time on the farm and hunting with her dad.  She was very involved in 4-H throughout her childhood.

While in middle school Sarah made up her mind she would be a wildlife biologist and chose Mizzou as her college and never waivered from that plan.  She graduated from Seckmann High School in 2010 and began her college career here at Mizzou that fall in Fisheries and Wildlife.  She graduated with her bachelor’s in 2014 and went on to obtain a master’s degree in natural resources in 2016.  Her passion was matched by her energy.  She worked on conservation and education projects in the summers - tagging Elk and developing curriculum for Missouri parks like Johnson Shut-Ins.  Sarah wanted spark something in today’s children hoping they would spend more time outside enjoying nature. 

Sarah met the love of her life while they were both working for the Department of Conservation.  Sarah and Alex Foster were a perfect match – both loved the outdoors and shared a passion for wildlife conservation.  They loved camping and hiking, so it was very appropriate that Alex proposed to Sarah at the Grand Tetons.  They were building a life together on an acreage they purchased together near Jamestown, Missouri.

Most recently, Sarah was employed as a 4-H State Specialist for Environment and Natural Resources.  She was in her element and had made a big impact in her short time there, especially in the area of Western Heritage and shooting sports.  
Sarah’s ultimate goal was to obtain her Ph.D. and work within the Department of Conservation heading up a Natural Resources Education division.  There is no doubt she would have accomplished this dream.

Please join family and friends in honoring this special young woman by helping establish the Sarah Huber Foster Scholarship for Wildlife Biology.
