Miniter Estate gift funds student scholarships

The Texas Woman’s University Foundation was the recent recipient of a final gift from the estate of John Joseph James Miniter, a longtime assistant professor at TWU in Library Science who retired in 1984. Dr. Miniter and his wife, Helen, who predeceased him, were passionate about TWU and giving back to help students with the creation of several scholarships during his lifetime. The estate gift is a tremendous testimony to the commitment and generosity of Dr. Miniter to TWU with the gift totaling nearly $500,000, which has been designated for student scholarships.
