Will Carter is the 2022 Wilbur Award for Youth

Leadership Texarkana’s Wilbur Awards have been given annually since 1992, in memory of community servant and historian Wilbur Smith. Celebrating the power of one to positively impact our community, the Wilbur Awards are given in three categories: honoring adults, youth, and organizations, to individuals and groups who demonstrate exemplary leadership in the community and a commitment to working together for community excellence.
This year’s Wilbur Award for Youth Leadership was presented to Will Carter. Will coordinated and wrote the curriculum for a leadership camp for middle school students from five school districts. Will encourages leadership and engages his peers to put ideas into action. Will planned twelve service projects this year alone for the “Kick Cancer” theme. Will developed the Lantern Launch project to fundraise and work with City Officials where he read the names of 75 people at our pep rally and gave each person who donated a lantern to take home to launch in memory of their loved one.
CONGRATULATIONS WILL! Thanks for leading the way in Texarkana USA!
