TamDee Wortham and Pits Endowed Scholarship
The TamDee Wortham and Pitts Endowed Scholarship was established in 2004 by Mrs. Elizabeth Pitt Wortham. The Scholarship was named after her two daughters, Tamara and Dierdre, also TSU graduates. Dierdre became a Doctor of Pharmacy, while Tamara, who passed away in 2004 at the age of 44, went into Business Education. Deirdre encouraged Mrs. Wortham to create the scholarship because she believed there were others who could benefit from it. Because of Mrs. Wortham’s love and appreciation for Tennessee State University and what it did for her and her siblings who all graduated from TSU, and her children, she agreed to help provide the same opportunity for other students.
