George Doey Memorial Scholarship Endowment

The scholarship was established in 1989 by bequest of George Doey.  Mr. Doey was a master stone mason, a world traveler, and graduate of Johnson State College.  He received his B.S. in Fine Arts in 1983, when he was fifty-nine years old.  A native of Glasgow, Scotland, he became a master mason and stone cutter, learning his craft as an apprentice.  Over his career, he lived and worked in South Africa, Rhodesia, Texas, and Vermont, building many stone buildings and churches.  In 1975, George and his wife Harriett moved to Middlebury. He was able to fulfill his lifetime dream of attaining a college degree through the JSC External Degree Program.  During his last semester he lived in a dorm on campus. This remarkable man of activity and achievement passed away November 12, 1989.  His names live on at JSC through this scholarship established especially to help studio and fine arts students.


George Doey Memorial Scholarship goes to a Vermont resident (since birth or age 10), with a record of high academic achievement and financial need, with preference given to a student majoring in studio or fine arts.
