Frank R. Day, former chairman of the board and chief executive officer of Trustmark National Bank, had a heart for young people and a desire to help them succeed. Until his death in 1999, Mr. Day provided scholarships anonymously through The Luckyday Foundation for eight Bailey Magnet School students. His goal was to provide deserving high school students who otherwise had little chance for a college education with the opportunity to continue their education at a major university like The University of Mississippi.
Frank Rogers Day, a native of Aberdeen, was an alumnus of the University of Mississippi and the Graduate School of Banking at Louisiana State University. In addition to serving as chairman of the board and CEO of Trustmark National Bank, Day committed himself to helping young Mississippians achieve their educational goals. In 1978 he established the Lucky Day Foundation to do just that. Although Frank Day died in 1999, his vision lives on through his foundation, which continues to support deserving Mississippi students. "The Essence of Survival" was Mr. Day's favorite metaphor for life.
The Essence of Survival
Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up.
It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed.
Every morning a lion wakes up.
It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.
It doesn't matter whether Luckyday Scholars are a lion or a gazelle.
When the sun comes up, you'd better be running.
