In Memory

Michelle White - Class Of 1983

Michelle Naomi White, 57, of San Antonio, Texas, passed away on November 26, 2022.

Michelle was born to Michie and John Q. White Sr. at Fort Carson, Colorado. After Michelle graduated from Jefferson High School- Denver, CO in 1983, she went on to study Biology at Colorado University at Boulder.

During her time at CU- Boulder, Michelle made the decision to enter the United States Army and served as a Military Police. This expertise catapulted Michelle into a 30 plus year career in law enforcement with the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office and the San Antonio Independent School District Police Department.

As a law enforcement officer, Michelle’s legacy can be defined by her commitment and compassion to her SAISD community. Her commitment to her SAISD community was monumental. She actively sought to serve the SAISD community by creating programs with an emphasis on crisis intervention training, for both adults and children, and developing training and resources for mental illness awareness. Michelle’s compassion for children within the SAISD community drove her Visit with Santa initiative; a program that gives underprivileged SAISD students the opportunity to visit with Santa and receive gifts during the holidays. These programs still exist today in serving the community.

Michelle brought her compassion for youth and mental illness awareness into retirement from law enforcement to Solution Point+. She served as a master facilitator in which she was able to continue pursuing her passion of helping those struggling with mental health illnesses, specifically, children, and develop a customized children’s crisis curriculum for Solution Point+. Michelle was predeceased by her father and mother, John Q. White Sr. and Michie White. She is survived by her two children, Corey Carter-Neyland and Xandria White. She is the youngest of five and is also survived by her siblings: Elaine Whitefeather, Yvonne Lopez, Adrienne White, and John White Jr.

Services were held at North Side Community Baptist Church on December 8, 2022, at 11:30 a.m. Immediately followed by the burial service at Fort Sam Houston at 1:15 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family requested donations be made to The Kristine Meza Foundation, an organization Michelle felt strongly about as a domestic violence survivor herself.
