In memory of Mrs. Myra Thompson
The Citadel community joins many in the Lowcountry in mourning the loss of Mrs. Myra Thompson who was killed June 17 while teaching a bible study class at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. She was a member of The Citadel Graduate College Classes of 1994 and 1999.
Mrs. Thompson was a pastor at the church and a life-long educator and learner who earned two Masters in Education degrees from The Citadel graduate college. She graduated in 1994 with a M.Ed. in Reading Education and then graduated in 1999 with a M.Ed. in Secondary Counselor of Education.
She is profoundly missed by her husband, Reverend Anthony Thompson, three children, 11 brothers, three sisters and a large extended family, and is remembered fondly by her many friends, colleagues and former classmates.
