Wilson Scholar Profiles

Our Wilson Scholars carry on Miss Wilson’s legacy of love, care, and service to Montreat College and their fellow students.


Continuing a Legacy of Service

“I cannot say how thankful I am for the opportunity to serve as a Wilson Scholar. This opportunity has allowed me to take my creativity and apply it professionally in my work in the office, and to do so with the support of the professionals that I work with in the office. Beyond that, I am elated to be a part of a mentor relationship where I am able to take the time to learn from an older, more experienced man and explore some of life’s deeper questions and to consider where I invest my time, why I do so, and how the way I spend my time can ultimately propel me towards what God has for me.”
