Today is a very special day as we honor the family of Andy and Roger Wilson for their hard work, dedication and support of the Carter Schools and community through the Andy Wilson Scholarship Fund!
The Andy Wilson Scholarship Fund was established after Carter Graduate and Knox County Sheriff Officer Andy Wilson, the son of Roger Wilson, tragically passed away in a car accident 10 years ago today on January 26, 2008. (Pause) Led by Andy’s Father Roger and Mother Becky they along with their family created the Andy Wilson Scholarship Fund and the Team 22 Athletics program in his memory. Andy’s father Roger who could be seen at nearly all Carter Sports events has since passed away on February 16, 2014. Through the loss of Andy and Roger the Wilson family has never wavered from their stance to serve and support the Carter Community and give a lasting memorial to their beloved family members.
Each year the Andy Wilson Scholarship Fund gives a $2,000 Scholarship to one Male and one Female Graduating-Athlete along with a $500 book & fee supplement for the next 3 years. Since the establishment of the Andy Wilson Scholarship Fund, the Andy Wilson Scholarship Fund has donated nearly $100,000 in scholarships and other aide to the Carter schools and community.
Ladies and Gentlemen on behalf of the Carter staff, community and everyone who has ever been touched by this amazing family join us in thanking the Wilson Family!
