Rebecca D. Lockhart Endowed Scholarship

The Rebecca D. Lockhart Endowed Scholarship was established to benefit a student with an aptitude and interest in public service in line with constitutional ideals. It is intended to inspire students to pursue degrees and to believe that they can make a positive difference in their communities.

Rebecca D. Lockhart earned a nursing degree from Brigham Young University and worked as a nurse for seven years before being elected to the Utah House of Representatives in 1998. She was elected the first female speaker of the house in 2010 and was a steadfast supporter of UVU in the legislature. The Rebecca D. Lockhart Endowed Scholarship honors the former speaker of the house, who died in January 2015 after a brief illness, for her outstanding leadership in public service.
