A new endowment at Roane State Community College will assist Morgan County residents of all ages to start and finish their two-year college education while residing at home and continuing to work.
Scholarships provided through the James Frank and Patricia Ann Wilson Morgan County Campus Scholarship Endowment will be awarded to high school students in the college’s dual enrollment program and to entering or current traditional or non-traditional students to further their post-secondary education at Roane State Community College.
Recipients must be a current or former Morgan County resident, have financial need and meet special criteria as set by the Roane State Community College Foundation Scholarship Committee.
“We deeply appreciate the endowment provided by the Wilson family,” said Dan Clifton, executive director of the Roane State Foundation. “Their donation will give students the assistance they need to complete their college education and create better lives for themselves and their families.”
James and Pat ask all Morgan County residents and those who desire to support them to contribute in any way possible to carry out the mission of Roane State Community College. It is Morgan County’s only post-secondary educational facility. Our future and the future our children depend upon it. James Frank Wilson is an attorney with Wilson and Brooks, P.C, chairman of Citizens First Bank and president and Chairman of W Group Properties, Inc. Pat Wilson is a retired Oak Ridge School Teacher.
