Day family establishes endowment
The Pamela Joyce Day Endowed Scholarship through the Northwest Community College Foundation has been established by her parents, Lamar and Mabel Day of Potts Camp.
Pam attended Northwest from 1973-1975. She graduated in the spring of 1975 with an associate of arts in social work. She transferred to The University of Southern Mississippi as an English major and was attending that college at the time of her death in 1979.
"She had such a tender and compassionate heart, and her goal was to always help others," said her sister, Charlotte Underwood of Olive Branch.
According to Lamar Day, Northwest has played a big part in the lives of their children. Roger, Kenneth, Charlotte, and Pam all attended Northwest. Only the youngest daughter Terri did not attend Northwest.
She went to Blue Mountain. Mr. Day took real estate classes at Northwest until he was 65.
"Pam graduated from Northwest. She was smart - with an exceptional IQ - and beautiful," said her mother.
"We are grateful to the Day family for establishing this endowment," said Sybil Canon, director of Development. "They have requested that the scholarship be given to a student in good standing who demonstrates financial need."
