Diana Beam Scholarship


The Diana Beam Scholarship was first presented in 2017 by an anonymous donor to honor her thirty-three years of teaching, coaching, and service to the Wilson Memorial High School community.  The Diana Beam Scholarship continues today to provide funds for educational scholarships to graduating seniors at Wilson Memorial High School who have excelled in the areas of Public Speaking, Theatre Arts, or the Fine Arts and demonstrate a financial need. Students selected for this scholarship have displayed a passion for the Arts, a dedication to excellence in the Arts, and a desire to continue to make the Arts a central focus of their continuing education.
