ALC Registrar Thelmarie Madden Thornsberry passed away Monday, June 16, 2014, after a long, courageous battle with breast cancer.

Thel was an amazing woman who truly exemplified the traits and characteristics set forth by our founder, Alice Lloyd. She worked at the College for over half a century. She was not only our registrar, but our historian, counselor, and friend. She and her husband, Cloys, made every effort to attend on-campus events, especially basketball games, and to help out any student in need. The friendship and love she shared will be greatly missed.

As a way of recognizing Thelmarie’s life of service to Alice Lloyd College and her dedication to the thousands of students she guided in their academic goals, a scholarship is being established in her honor.
