One of these two endowed scholarships was established by the friends and family of Roberta after her untimely death in 1998. The other scholarship was created in Roberta's honor by her husband, Doyle. Roberta and Doyle, practiced pharmacy in Haskell, Texas for 29 years and were very active in the Big Country Pharmacy Association, WTPA, TPA, and NCPA. Roberta received the WTPA’s “Heritage Award” in 1998 and was vice president of the Texas State Board of Pharmacy at the time of her death. While practicing in Haskell, over 35 young people choose pharmacy as their profession being encouraged and led by Roberta. With these scholarships, Roberta is still helping young people attend pharmacy school.
