The club made it’s annual presentation of the Alex Wilson Awards. The awards are two $1000 scholarships, this year presented to Dominic Rodts and Tabarek Mohammed Ali. Tabarek was not able to attend the presentation.

The club also heard from past recipients of another scholarship we support: the TC & Bill Parker Scholarship to Wake Tech. Two of the three students thanked the club and described their progress and plans.

Lastly, the club presented a $25,000 check to the Wake Tech Foundation for the Bridges to Success program. Bridges to Success is one of the club’s 50th anniversary projects.
