James Frank and Patricia Ann Wilson recently established a scholarship endowment with the Roane State Foundation, the James Frank and Patricia Ann Wilson Morgan County Campus Scholarship Endowment.
Now, they have submitted an additional gift that will expand scholarship opportunities to nursing and allied health sciences students in Morgan County, a press release said. The Wilsons said: “We are pleased to double down on our commitment to these scholarship beneficiaries. It is very important to us. We ask that you determine what is important to you and do the same now rather than later.”
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.
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, the press release said.
“It is Morgan County’s only post-secondary educational facility,” the press release said. “Our future and the future of our children depend upon it.”
James Frank Wilson is an attorney with Wilson and Brooks, P.C; chairman of Citizens First Bank; and chairman of W Group Properties Inc. Pat Wilson is a retired Oak Ridge school teacher.
