The Reverend Dr. Philip Jamieson, President of The United Methodist Foundation for the Memphis and Tennessee Conferences, announces that the recipients of the Tom and Betty Cloyd Scholarship are Amber Armistead and Myriam Cortes. Amber is a member of Bethesda United Methodist Church, serves as a local pastor for a three-point charge in the Tennessee Conference, and is currently enrolled at Vanderbilt Divinity School in Nashville, Tennessee. Myriam is a member of the Tennessee Annual Conference and serves as a local pastor for Iglesia Metodista Unida Ebenezer. She is currently enrolled at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, DC.
The Tom and Betty Cloyd Scholarship Fund was created by Belle Meade United Methodist Church to honor the Cloyds’ ministries through the years. This fund was placed with the United Methodist Foundation for the Memphis and Tennessee Conferences for investing and distributing one or more scholarships each year. Mrs. Betty Cloyd continues to be consulted about possible recipients, and Amber and Myriam were the students chosen this year.
Anyone wishing to honor the late Dr. Tom Cloyd or Mrs. Betty Cloyd may contribute to the Foundation (304 S. Perimeter Park Dr., Suite 3, Nashville, TN 37211) at any time with gifts being placed in the Scholarship Fund.
