Retired TWU professor John J. Miniter establishes scholarship for students


DENTON – As a professor at Texas Woman’s University for 20 years, John J. Miniter, Ph.D., has always recognized the value of a TWU education. With that in mind and to honor his wife of 58 years, Dr. Miniter has donated $10,000 to the TWU Foundation to establish the Helen B. Miniter Scholarship.

“My wife attended TWU, and we wanted to give back to a university that we appreciate so much,” Dr. Miniter said.

The first Helen B. Miniter Scholarship will be awarded for the 2008-2009 academic school year. Preference in awarding the endowed scholarship will be for an undergraduate student in financial need who is a Native American or African American.

Dr. Miniter joined the TWU School of Library and Information Studies in 1964 and retired from the university in 1984. Prior to his teaching at TWU, he was a librarian in the North Texas area for several years and also served as a technical librarian for the U.S. Navy Underwater Sound Laboratory in New London, Conn. Dr. Miniter and Mrs. Miniter have lived in Denton for more than 35 years.

For more information on endowed scholarships or to contribute to the Helen B. Miniter Scholarship, please call 940-898-3878.
