Carolyn Rose Naylor, mother to Rupert Sizemore III and mother-in-law to Erica Jevons Sizemore, was a free spirit at heart but knew the benefits of hard work. She was no stranger to sacrifice for the benefit of others, especially her children, Rupert Sizemore III and Katherine Jenkins. She put herself through her schooling to become a nurse while working two jobs with a toddler at home. Despite sometimes challenging circumstances, she never missed a joyful moment and was always quick to help and care for others. She is missed but her legacy lives on in this endowment which pays tribute to Carolyn’s love for her family and sheer determination to make a better life for herself; this endowment is dedicated to her for those students who chose to advance themselves through their education, including those many students who often have little to no support on the way to reaching their dreams.
