Ms. Bennie Doggett, Covington, Ky., (1943-). African American. Ms. Doggett spent more than a decade as a social worker for the William Martin Northern Kentucky Community Center in Covington, where she helped the homeless find housing, the unemployed find jobs and students graduate from high school. She established a program at the community center that brought suburban white students to inner-city Covington to work with African American youth. She worked with police to rid the East side of Covington of drug trafficking while at the same time demanding that the officers respect the residents that they serve. Ms. Doggett owned a clothing boutique in Covington and served on numerous boards to provide bridges between blacks and whites in Northern Kentucky.
