Everybody Has a Story

"I loved my college years at Delta State! As an alumni, it is important to me to give back to a place that gave me so very much. I want all the academic, athletic, artistic and social opportunities that I had, to be available for future generations. "


- Chrissy Keller LaMastus

"I come from a long line of Delta State University history in my family. My mother, uncle, wife, and myself graduated from Delta State University, and now the 3rd generation of my family, our daughter, is attending Delta State. In just thinking of today's education, I see there is such an immense need for privately funded scholarships to enable students who need financial help to attend college.... to open up their future. It falls heavy on my heart to find avenues to give what I can to the Delta State Foundation to provide such help. Everyone needs an education to survive in this world. I am an agent with State Farm Insurance and with their being matching gift company, State Farm matches my gifts to Delta State thus doubling my initial gifts. It is wonderful to work with a company who believes in giving back."


- Patrick Davis, class of 1996

"It is very important for me to give because, even as a student, I know the university can't do it alone, but if every one comes together as a whole- Alumni included- it can make a big difference to a single student or even a whole group of students. As a student, I know I need scholarships to assist me in staying in school and one day being successful."

"Delta State has been very influential in my life and the lives of those that I hold most dear. It's important to me to give back to an institution that has impacted my family for many generations. "


- Major General Thomas Moore (Ret.)

"I hope my gifts, especially to the Vicki Fioranelli Scholarship which I was honored to have established in my honor when I retired, can touch students who would otherwise not be able to obtain a college degree."


- Vicki Fioranelli

"I believe that in giving to Delta State, it might give someone a foothold, a springboard, or just a chance to obtain a quality education. "
