A memorial scholarship program was established in memory of King Moore Willis who served on the WEC committee. Church members have donated money to this fund which has enabled many preschoolers to continue their education in spite of financial hardships. All donations are appreciated and will help to continue meeting the needs of future students as they come up. These gifts are another way in which we share the love of God with those around us.
