Dovie Juanita Miles Goodwin Scholarship

Deltas at a gathering

Dovie Juanita Miles Goodwin was a trailblazer in the field of education as one of the first Black teachers in the state of Utah. She was a dedicated community servant through professional organizations such as the American Association of University Women (AAUW), National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Mrs. Goodwin stressed the importance of education in all she accomplished and believed in helping others with their educational endeavors. This was exemplified by the fact that upon retiring from teaching, she continued to tutor students well into her 90s. She was the recipient of many awards, including Teacher of the Year (retired) and the 2006 Utah Martin Luther King, Jr. Drum Major Award. 

The Greater Salt Lake Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is committed to helping young people pursue their educational aspirations. This scholarship, named in honor of Dovie Goodwin, a charter member of the Greater Salt Lake Alumnae (formerly Ogden Alumnae) Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was established to provide a qualified high school student with a $1,000 scholarship to be used toward their educational endeavors. The recipient of this scholarship will be charged to carry on her legacy of commitment to education, academic excellence, commitment to education and community service. 

Scholarships are available to students attending a public, private, or charter high school within the state of Utah. To be eligible to receive an award, recipients must be an African American male or female, have a grade point average of at least 2.5 (based on a 4.0 scale) and be enrolled in a fulltime program at an accredited college, university, or an institution of equivalent accreditation during the upcoming academic year.
