Corinth High School
Class Of 1962


The CHS Alumni Association is proud to announce that Dianne Miller Papasan (CHS Class of 1962) has been selected as the “2019 CHSAA’s - Distinguished Alumna of the Year.”

Dianne has been very instrumental in bringing Art to Le Bonheur Hospital in Memphis, Methodist Hospice Residence, West Cancer Clinic, Shorb Tower and various other healthcare facilities in the area. Dianne has been a big supporter of Teach America, served on the Board of the Memphis Botanical Gardens, Church Health, Child Advocacy and has been involved in numerous other charities and organizations. Dianne helped with the resettlement of Vietnamese families that came to Memphis years ago. During this time she helped organize “Friends of the Settlement.” One of their projects was selling quilts made by the women and giving all the proceeds back to the settlement.

Dianne graduated with a degree in Dental Hygiene from UT Health Sciences and practiced in this field for 25 years. However, her life long passion for art eventually allowed her to be a Hospital Art Curator. 
Dianne understands the importance of art as related to healing.

Dianne was President of her Senior Class and first female to hold this office at CHS and has lead the way in organizing the Class of 1962 Class Reunions throughout the years.

She is also the first woman to be honored as the CHSAA’s - “Distinguished Alumna of the Year.” All nominations are solicited from CHS Alumni and then are selected by a committee of graduates.

She was also voted as Miss CHS by the student body in 1962.

Dianne will be honored at a CHS home football game later in the season...TBA soon!

Congratulations Dianne on this well deserved honor.


Ruth Hall Nash (Willoughby) submitted Dianne's name and achievments for the CHS Alumni of the Year Award! We sincerely thank her for nominating Dianne for this award as well as writing about Diannes achievements and dedication to her special projects. Thanks a bunch Ruth Hall for your efforts and thoughts for "your", and our special friend Dianne and classmate.


I've had my share of pleasure

      And even more of pain

And both I've come to treasure,

   The sunshine AND the rain;

    With little left to boast of

   The scars I bear a host of

Now help me make the most of

  The moments that remain.
