A scholarship has been established for civil and environmental engineering students at Mississippi State University in memory of alumnus James Carson Patton Sr.
Patton, a 1941 civil engineering graduate, served in the Navy Seabees Construction Battalion during World War II. He later served as a civil engineer in Lexington for 35 years before returning to his native Starkville upon his retirement.
He and his wife were avid supporters of the university and contributed to engineering and athletic scholarships and programs over the years.
The endowment was established by the Pattons' children, Linda Patton MacMorran, James Carson Patton Jr. and Sara Patton Rutledge.
For more information about this and other engineering scholarships at MSU, contact Bennett Evans at 662-325-0386, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
