MU Honors College Mourns the Passing of Penny Stamps

Penny Stamps

It is with sadness that we note the passing, yesterday (December 13, 2018) of Penny Stamps, one of the namesakes and benefactors of the Stamps Scholars program, which MU has been associated with since 2016. Penny’s generosity and support, along with that of her husband Roe, and daughter Annie, have helped ensure that the Honors College will remain among the upper echelon of programs throughout the nation, and continues to enroll the brightest and most accomplished students.

We share this account of her life (it is so much more than an obituary) from the Miami Herald,, and ask all members of the MU Honors community to join us in marking and remembering the influence of a life well-lived.
