Congratulations to Michael Salmon, a senior at WNHS and Captain on the Spartans Lacrosse team. He was awarded the SSG William R Wilson III Memorial Scholarship on behalf of the Jolly Boys of Williamsville, N.Y.
In addition to playing defense and linesman on the lacrosse team, Mike is active with the National Honor Society, German Honor Society and works at Arbordale Nursery.
He hopes to attend Canisius or Cortland and major in Athletic Training and Physical Therapy.
Good luck Mike!
The SSGWilson3 Foundation proudly presented Elmo’s with a memorial plaque in Billy’s honor on his birthday 2/28.
The idea came from those in the neighborhood, specifically Kathy Weppner, Bill Sullivan and Wilson’s longtime friend David Scott Myers. “I think it is a perfect tribute, because Billy was really known by so many people in the neighborhood,” Myers said. “It really was Billy’s neighborhood.”
