Followill attended NCTC from 1960 to 1962 before completing her bachelor and master’s degrees in education at the University of North Texas. She taught 7th grade for two years at Callisburg ISD and taught 2nd grade at McMurray Elementary, Gainesville ISD, for 10 years.

Followill was very passionate about education. She touched many lives and made a positive impact on many children during her lifetime. This scholarship is in memory and honor of her. Through this scholarship, her legacy will continue to touch lives and impact the future of many individuals.
