Judge James E. "Pinky" Wilson Scholarship ($2,000)

The Judge James E. Pinky Wilson Scholarship provides a scholarship award to graduates of Midland County high schools (public or private/parochial) or those who have been Midland County residents for at least a year. It is intended to assist students in pursuit of a baccalaureate degree. Successful applicants will be those most likely to share and act upon Judge Wilson's philosophy that we should “expand the bridge of opportunity” for others, and to “reach back to help those less fortunate to make the same journey”.

The essay for this scholarship should describe activities, goals, interests and jobs held. Please give specific examples of how you have utilized your experiences from these activities to help others less fortunate to make the same journey that you have made.
