Bitsy and Henry Bonney Memorial Nursing Scholarship


If two were ever meant for each other, it was Henry and Bitsy Bonney. Having met while attending Yazoo City High School (Mississippi), they didn’t let distance or time diminish their love.


Henry received a football scholarship to the University of Oklahoma, and he was a member of the 1955 National Championship team and part of Bud Wilkinson’s 47 straight victories. Meanwhile, Bitsy attended Mississippi State College for Women and Millsaps College. After graduation, Bitsy moved to Norman, Oklahoma to be with Henry. They were married in 1959 and made Duncan their home in 1961.
