This annual event celebrates the memory of Ida Mae Theus-Mays who was a devout believer and supporter of education and the founder of Faith Deliverance Apostolic Church. The Ida Mae Theus-Mays Memorial Scholarship Fund was established to help provide an education for second-year full-time students at DSCC. To be eligible, the students must have and maintain a minimum 2.5 grade point average, must be active in campus life at DSCC, and should be an active member of a Christian-centered church. In coordination with the Financial Aid Office and the financial aid guidelines at Dyersburg State, the trustees of Faith Deliverance Apostolic Church make the selection. The process includes the submission of an application, a letter from the applicant and two reference letters.
