It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of:
Myra Thompson’79

bc_alumni_thompson_myraThe Benedict College Family mourns the loss of Mrs. Myra Thompson, Class of 1979. Mrs. Thompson was tragically killed in the Charleston shooting while teaching a bible study class at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church Wednesday evening, (6.17.15). She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in English from Benedict and she was a retired high school counselor, and a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

We remember Mrs. Thompson as a warm, loving and kind member of the Benedict College Family. We asked that you pray for her family, friends, and husband, Reverend Anthony Thompson, who is also a graduate of Benedict College, Class of 1974. Reverend Thompson is a Vicar at Holy Trinity Reformed Episcopal Church (ACNA) in Charleston, SC.

Let us also pray for ALL the victims of this senseless crime and the entire City of Charleston.
