Melba Pattilo
By: N T.
South Carolina, Grade 8



I am nominating Melba Pattilo because she wasn't on the list and she deserves to be noticed also. Melba had a lot of courage to go to the all white school and get beat up. She was threatened many times and she is notable to be on this honor roll. She felt it was a task from God to go to this school, and she wouldn't let them win. She changed the world for everyone. Thanks to her and many others everyone can go to school together. I am thankful for what she has done for me and everyone else.
