Loyal West Virginian

At halftime of last Saturday’s football game between West Virginia University and the University of Cincinnati, in Morgantown,  Judge Frederick P. Stamp, a 1956 Washington and Lee alumnus, was honored with his wife, Joan, as “Most Loyal West Virginians.”

The recognition was part of WVU’s 63rd annual Mountaineer Week.

Judge Stamp, who had a private practice in his hometown of Wheeling for 30 years, was nominated to the U.S. District Court by President George H.W. Bush in May 1990.  He assumed senior status on the court in November 2006. In addition, he has served in the state legislature, as president of the WVU Board of Regents and on the WVU College of Law Visiting Committee. Joan Stamp, who owns a jewelry design business, currently serves on the WVU Foundation Board of Directors.

The Most Loyal West Virginian designation exemplifies faithfulness to the ideals and goals of the state of West Virginia through business, professional and civic achievement, as well as support for WVU.
