Carle Wilson Scholarship Winner to be awarded.

The NAACP of Transylvania County is delighted to announce this year’s winner of the Carle Wilson Scholarship for the Arts and Education award.

This year’s winner is Justine Rideout, an 18 year old Brevard resident and artist who has been accepted at the Savannah College of Art and Design.

She will receive her distinguished award on Saturday, June 18th at 3 pm at the Bethel “A” Baptist Church’s Fellowship Hall. A reception will follow a brief ceremony. The award provides $5,000.00 in funds towards college expenses.

All are invited to attend this special event. This Scholarship was established in memory of Carle Wilson Jr., a distinguished and beloved member of the Brevard community. Carle was a scholar, an actor, an accomplished musician and a longtime member of St. Philip’s Episcopal Church who valued quality education and cherished Music and the Arts.
