This event will help to raise higher education scholarship funds for Haywood County young men and women who's lives have been impacted by substance abuse...

Dr. Ann R. Wilke, known as Ann, graduated from medical school in the 1960’s. She was one of three women in her graduating class. She practiced medicine in rural communities often sacrificing her time and effort in making house calls and providing care and comfort to families in need. Dr. Wilke was well aware of the negative impact of drug dependency issues on the family structure.

Ann is no longer with us. She unexpectedly went on to join our Lord in 2011. This memorial scholarship, dedicated in her name, is to provide financial education and career training assistance for young adults of Haywood County who have survived the challenges of drug dependency issues within their immediate family environment.

The Eckerd Foundation and the Wilke family invite you to join this county wide effort in support of our young adults who have the desire and ability to succeed but need the financial help to get on the way.
