MORE ABOUT THE THELMA SANDERS SCHOLARSHIP DANCE (TSSD)

For over half a century, the Jackson Tougaloo Alumni Chapter (JTAC) has sponsored the Thelma Sanders Scholarship Dance (TSSD).
For many years the dance was considered the “social event” of the holiday season. The dance provided an opportunity for alumni, friends, family and those who returned to Jackson for the holidays to gather and reconnect with old acquaintances while supporting a worthy cause.

Traditionally held during the Christmas season, the dance was the brainchild of the late Thelma Sander, a prominent Jackson business woman and civic leader who graduated from Tougaloo College in 1946
