Delton Dyal Memorial Scholarship Endowment
Delton Dyal was a 1973 graduate of Warren County High School and received his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Tennessee Technological University in 1979. He spent most of his career in accounting, working for local manufacturing companies such as FFM, Aqua Tech, Oster, TRW, and Flowserve. Delton also served two terms as the Mayor of the City of Baxter, Tennessee and was a deacon at Jefferson Avenue Church of Christ.
Delton's sense of humor, optimistic outlook, and zest for life were inspirations to all who met him. He died in February 2008, after an extended and bravely fought battle with cancer. He left behind his wife of 32 years, the former Cindy Medley, and a daughter, Valerie Loftis.
The Delton Dyal Memorial Scholarship is a tribute to the positive mark he made on the lives of those with whom he came in contact.
A leader in the effort to memorialize Delton was former co-worker Linda D'Amanda of Oak Point, Texas. She was a scholarship student in college and viewed this tribute to Delton as an opportunity to give back. However, it is the added support of his family and friends that make this endowment a reality.
