The James Dean Wilson Scholarship Fund was created as a way to remember a son, brother, friend and co-worker. In June, 2012, James’ life was cut short by a tragic motorcycle accident. He was 26 years old and is missed each and every day.

This young man was always willing to help. No matter how busy he was, he always said, “yes.” Whether it was teaching a fellow draftsman, helping a friend cut wood or just being moral support, James would put aside his own needs to help others.

It is in that same spirit of helping others that this scholarship endowment fund was created at Clinton Community College. Not just to remember, but to help those in our community.
