CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Two scholarship funds have been established in memory of former Charleston County School District Superintendent Dr. Maria Goodloe-Johnson.

One fund will be used to offer support to the Twenty Pearls Foundation of Charleston, a nonprofit which serves to exercise, promote, and protect the privileges and interests of Charleston County residents.

If you would like to donate to that fund, you can send money to the foundation at Post Office Box 30115 in Charleston , SC 29417. The tax identification number is 32-0133373.

The second fund will raise money for Goodloe-Johnson's daughter, Maya. To donate, address funds to the Dr. Maria Goodloe-Johnson Scholarship Fund for Maya Johnson at any First Federal Bank in Charleston.

A service for Dr. Maria Goodloe-Johnson, the first black female to serve as superintendent for Charleston County School District, will be held this Friday at Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist Church in North Charleston.

The doctor was in charge of Charleston County schools for almost four years and was chosen in 2003 after an eight-month search. She started her career in special education in Colorado, becoming the youngest African-American woman principal in that state.

Goodloe-Johnson died Dec. 5 after being sick with cancer for about a year, family members said.

The service is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. at 7936 Rivers Avenue. Funeral arrangements are still incomplete at this point, according to the Fielding Home for Funerals.
