Spotlight on Rose Society Members: Carole and Bill Dye

Appreciation is extended to all Rose Society members whose support provides resources for mentoring, leadership development, life/career preparation and travel programs designed for Ole Miss Women’s Council scholars — our future servant leaders and engaged citizens.

Rose Society members are committed to supporting OMWC scholarship recipients, who have been chosen for their capacity to make meaningful contributions to society. “Imagine expanding your own legacy by providing transformational support to these deserving young servant-leaders,” said Suzanne Helveston, career and leadership coordinator for the OMWC.

Longtime University of Mississippi supporters and alumni Carole and Bill Dye of Oxford, Mississippi,chose to join the Rose Society in 2011 and have since been dedicated and engaged members.

“Bill and I joined and continue to support the Women’s Council scholarship and mentoring program because we believe in supporting scholarship programs. The OMWC program was appealing to us because it’s a combination of many individuals and resources, which makes for a powerful program,” said Carole Dye.

“We believe the Rose Society and the OMWC make it possible to aid the university in identifying strong potential leaders in society, while providing monetary and mentoring resources to help students be the best they can be.”

Carole Dye earned master’s and doctoral degrees in education from Ole Miss, after receiving an undergraduate degree from Millsaps College. Bill Dye earned a juris doctorate from the Ole Miss School of Law, after he completed his undergraduate degree at Mississippi College.

Rose Society membership is $1,000 annually and can be paid with an outright gift or by monthly installments. For more information, contact Suzanne Helveston at shelveston@olemiss.edu or 662-915-7273.
