Sneed: Hobert and Mayme Sneed Memorial Scholarship

Sneed: Hobert and Mayme Sneed Memorial Scholarship

Established by Mayme Sneed & the heirs of Hobert and Mayme Sneed

Awarded to a men’s basketball player

Over a span of almost four decades, Hobert and Mayme provided financial assistance to countless Western athletes, many of whom would have been unable to complete college without their generous aid. At the same time they harbored a deep concern for the well-being of Western.

Hobert was one of the originators of the 500 Club, whose goal following World War II was securing an enrollment of 500 on the Dillon campus. Hobert personally sponsored WMC entries in the Western Invitational Basketball Tournament at Lewistown and, when the WMC Century Club was formed in 1979, Hobert was voted its first president.

Hobert was a Dillon businessman, and will forever be remembered as one of Western’s most-valued and respected boosters—a humanitarian in the finest sense of that word.


This scholarship is now supported by Marvin and Patricia Miller and their children and grandchildren. Patricia's parents are Hobert and Mayme Sneed and they continue the legacy of giving to Montana Western athletes just as their parents did. Patricia just turned 84 years old and Marvin will turn 88 this year (2024). Their motto is "We can do what we do because we do what we do." They hit the ground running every day either on an elliptical or treadmill. They work hard every day and are involved in the lives of their kids, grandkis and friends.
