Pickett Cheerleading Scholarship Fund

Pickett Cheerleading Scholarship Fund

In September 2013 the families of NANCY PICKETT DANTZLER and JANEIL PICKETT STUTTS initiated an endowment to fund a scholarship in memory of Nancy Pickett Dantzler and in honor of Janeil Pickett Stutts who were cheerleaders at Delta State.

The scholarship also honors the memory of the deceased members of the Pickett-Stutts-Dantzler family including Ralph Stutts, Sam Dantzler, LTC Jerry Dickerson, and Ryan White. Ralph, husband of Janeil and a 1953 graduate of Delta State and former football player, passed away in 1995. Sam, husband of Nancy, passed away in 1997. Jerry, a native of Yazoo City, was a victim of the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon. Ryan lost his life in a car accident in 2010 at the age of 27. Ryan was the head baseball coach at Senatobia High School at the time of his death.

The scholarship will be awarded to a member(s) of the Cheerleading Squad and selected with input from the Cheerleading Sponsor ion collaboration with the Admissions and Recruiting Office and Office of Financial Aid. The recipient must be in good academic standing with the University and maintain the scholarship for subsequent years.
