Creative Fundraisers for SON Scholarship Fund

The Freedom Innovational soccer tournament was held in March to benefit the Katherine Wilson Scholarship Fund. The fund is a tribute to UNC Chapel Hill School of Nursing alumna Katherine Wilson, who overcame great obstacles to earn her bachelor of science in nursing degree only to lose a tragic five-year battle with cancer at age 28. Watch David Fletcher, the girl’s soccer head coach at Freedom High School in Morganton, speak about the tournament and the fund in this video: http://titancast.titantv.com/p/whky/s/Katherine-Wilson-Scholarship/1ACF2C2J.aspx
