Ricky Wilcox was a well-respected student athlete and standout wrestler at Buena Regional High School. He was to attend West Virginia University in the fall. On June 14, 2004, the day before his high school graduation, his life was cut short in a car accident. This scholarship fund has been set up in his memory by family and friends, to recognize athletes who embody the qualities Ricky demonstrated on and off the mat. The Ricky Wilcox Memorial Scholarships are made possible because of the generosity and tremendous support that we receive from our sponsors, local businesses, community friends, volunteers, and all of our dedicated runners and walkers! Thanks to all of you who join us in our efforts of honoring and keeping the memory of Ricky with us and supporting these outstanding students!
The Ricky Wilcox Scholarship Fund is a 501c3 non profit and awards scholarships for college yearly to outstanding student athletes from Buena Regional High School. More than $155,000.00 has been awarded just from this event.
