Eleanor B. Trimble, class of 1936, was recently inducted into Delta State University National Alumni Association’s Golden Circle, which celebrates graduates of 50 or more years from Delta State. One-hundred-five years old, she earned a general science degree from the College of Arts and Sciences and resides at Providence Assisted Living in Cleveland.

“As president of the Golden Circle it was my privilege and pleasure to induct Mrs. Trimble,” said Dr. Johnny Arnold ’58 Golden Circle president. “Trimble was then presented the Golden Circle medallion, which she proudly wears.”
