Pasadena Education Network to Award Inaugural Rodney E. Goodwin Scholarship to Muir Student


The Pasadena Education Network (PEN) is pleased to announce that in May 2015, the inaugural Rodney E. Goodwin Memorial Scholarship will be awarded. The $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to one John Muir High School boy who will enroll in a 4-year college in the fall 2015, is the first in his family to go to college, and demonstrates both need and academic success in high school. Scholarship applications are available at and are due no later than May 8, 2015.

Rodney E. Goodwin passed away on March 12, 2014. A resident of Altadena since 1987, Goodwin was known for his generous nature and loving spirit. Professionally, he was the Chief Financial Officer for the Operating Engineers Trust Funds/IUOE Local 12 in Pasadena.

Goodwin was raised in the rural South, and because of the guidance he received while growing up, he was the first in his family to go to college. He was a proud graduate of Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina where he received a degree in Accounting.

Because Goodwin believed in the value of education and knew first-hand the importance of college access for low income students, he became a mentor at Pasadena Unified School District’s John Muir High School. To keep Rodney’s passion and memory alive, PEN will distribute this memorial scholarship.
