A celebration of the life of Dottie Stimpson will be held at 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 3, in the Skyline Room of the Stueckle Sky Center. The campus community is invited to join with Stimpson’s family, friends and representatives of the worthy causes and organizations she supported in honoring her remarkable life.

Parking is available in front of the Stueckle Sky Center.

At Boise State, Stimpson served on the board of the Frank Church Institute, on the advisory board for the College of Education and worked closely with the Service-Learning program as a way to encourage young people to become active in community programs. As a way to honor her late husband, Edward Stimpson, she endowed a scholarship in engineering with an emphasis on leadership, as well as supported a number of other programs at the university.

Dottie was the founder and first president of City Club of Boise, a forum to assemble people with various political and philosophical positions to engage in civil discussions. She also served on the Idaho Governor’s Commission. Prior to coming to Idaho, Dottie and Ed lived in Washington, D.C. where she worked for a U.S. senator, was the director of legislation for the League of Women Voters and was the director of public relations for the National Association of Counties.
