Brian Wilson Creates Scholarship in Honor of his Father

By Melissa Felkins

Brian Wilson announced over the holiday weekend that he was creating the “Michael Wilson Scholarship” in honor of his late father. Here is a link to information about it on his website.

"The gift is the largest scholarship given by an individual to be administered by the Air Force Association in its 65 year history.Two scholarships will be awarded each year for the next five years (2011 to 2015) and is open to any Air Force ROTC Cadet in the United States of America."

He went on to tell the Mercury News, Andrew Baggarly:

"Now that I’m grounded contractually, I felt it was necessary not just to donate money, but to see where it goes. It’ll bridge the gap between the finding they get and the funding they’ll need."

It’s great to see the guys giving back to the community and in this case, nation.

I’m sure your father is very proud, Brian.
