The Nashville Sports Council is proud to announce the establishment of the inaugural Felicia Carol Wilt Scholarship, an initiative aimed at recognizing and supporting the invaluable contributions of student volunteers within the local sports community.
The Felicia Carol Wilt Scholarship is named in honor of the late Felicia Carol Wilt, a passionate sports fan and dedicated volunteer who regularly volunteered at the SEC Men's Basketball Tournament, St. Jude Rock 'n' Roll Running Series and the TransPerfect Music City Bowl among other events. It aims to celebrate the efforts of student volunteers who go above and beyond to make a positive impact at Nashville Sports Council events.
