Dick and Maggie Scarlett

Donor Feature

For Dick and Maggie Scarlett, the University of Wyoming is a family affair. Both are alums of the university—Dick in business administration and Maggie in hearing and speech science—and many generations of their family before and after them are UW graduates. In fact, the Maggie’s family— the Websters—were named Wyoming Family of the Year in 2000, and Dick and Maggie have each earned many honors, including an Honorary Doctorate, UW Distinguished Alumnus, Distinguished Alumnus of the College of Business, and Outstanding Alumna of the College of Arts and Sciences.

The Scarletts have given a lot to their alma mater, including support for a distinguished professorship for business administration, a business excellence fund, the Art Museum, and Wyoming Athletics, among many other things. In fact, they’ve both been giving to UW for 55 years. Their most recent gift goes toward a discipline close to Maggie’s heart—speech language pathology. After earning her bachelor’s in this field at UW, Maggie went on to earn a master’s from Colorado State University. She then spent her career working with children in Denver, Salt Lake City, and three school districts in Wyoming including Teton County. The Maggie Scarlett Excellence Fund in Speech Language Pathology fosters excellence and provides financial support to the University of Wyoming College of Health Sciences Division of Communication Disorders, including toward a named chair in Speech Language Pathology.
