Corinthian R. Nutter Scholarship
The Corinthian Nutter Scholarship was created to honor the legacy of the late Corinthian Ricks Nutter, a pioneer educator. Our purpose is to honor her work ethic, determination, community service and her willingness to speak out when few others would regarding the deplorable conditions at the all black Walker Elementary School in 1943. Mrs. Nutter was considered “a voice ahead of her time.”
