Diane Keating Woodcox Scholarship established

The Lamar University Foundation has announced an endowed scholarship has been established for the College of Arts and Sciences. The Diane Keating Woodcox Scholarship in English and Modern Languages will provide funding for outstanding students to further their studies at Lamar.

“We are excited about this scholarship,” said Brenda Nichols, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. “This is an excellent opportunity for us to provide upper division students a way to continue their education. The aid of this scholarship should help students graduate in four years as well as help them develop into successful writers.”

While studying English at Lamar between 1960 and 1962, Woodcox was also a member of Kappa Delta sorority.

Establishing this scholarship follows a family history of supporting Lamar University.  Woodcox and her husband, Larry, have previously honored her brothers, Thomas Keating ‘67 and Calvin Keating ’73, with memorial scholarships supporting industrial engineering and business, respectively.
