Herbert & Irene Roth

Herbert and Irene Roth have dedicated their lives to Christian education. When they were first married, they went to Mount Vernon Academy where Herb taught English and German and Irene taught grades 3-4 at the Mount Vernon Elementary School. Their next move was to Columbia Union College. In addition to his teaching, Herb completed his M.A. in English at the University of Maryland. When their daughter, Dorene, started school, Irene went to work at the Registrar's office at Columbia Union College. In 1969, they transferred to Southwestern Adventist College. In 1978, after receiving his Ph.D. in English from Texas Christian University, Herb was asked to chair the English Department. Irene served as Assistant Registrar.

This scholarship is awarded to a student entering their junior or senior year with a major or minor in English, based on academic achievement and/or financial need.
