Jutta Ferretti Memorial

We are sad to announce that on December 25, 2021, at the age of 97, long time DSU supporter, Jutta Ferretti (Cleveland, Mississippi) passed away.

Jutta earned a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies, magna cum laude, on December 11, 2010 at age 86 – gaining distinction as the oldest graduate in the history of Delta State University. She was a member of Pi Gamma Mu, the national honor society in social studies, Kappa Pi, the international honorary art fraternity; and was elected to Who’s Who in American Colleges and Universities. The Jutta Karnstedt-Ferretti Special Collection Room in the Roberts- LaForge Library was dedicated in her honor.

Memorials can be made to one of several scholarships established at Delta State in her honor.
