THE ANNUAL THELMA SANDERS SCHOLARSHIP DANCE 

is held each year on the day after Christmas… December 26, 2021!  

TSSD 2020 was a great success. We raised over $10,000 and will be able to make a significant contribution to Tougaloo College as well as gift each student who applied for the JTAC book stipend a well-deserved award.

Five Draw Down Winners decided to split the JACKPOT; congrats to each of our winners.

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
