Nell Thomas Endowed Scholarship

In Memory of Nell Thomas

Nell Thomas Endowed Scholarship was initiated in December 2008 by her graduates of E. E. Bass and Greenville High School.

Nell Thomas taught English in Greenville, Mississippi for thirty one years and was held in the highest esteem in all walks of her life and in her personal dedication in molding the minds and characters of young men and women.  In 1965 Mrs. Thomas was recognized as Mississippi's Outstanding Teacher of the Year, a runner-up for National Teacher of the Year and Delta State University's Outstanding Alumnus of the Year.
Even though Mrs. Thomas passed away on March 28, 2010, she continues to live on through her family, friends, students and recipients of the Nell Thomas Endowed Scholarship.
