Introduction

Wallace Prather was a dedicated coach who devoted his life to helping young people. His coaching and mentoring efforts contributed to many college scholarship opportunities for young males and females. Truly a legend in his time, “Wallace Prather Jr. Legacy” will echo for generations to come.

In his memory, we will continue the effort of contributing scholarships through the Wallace Prather Jr., Educational Foundation.

More About Us

The Wallace Prather Jr., Foundation evolved from the vision of Jennifer Prather. This is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping young males and females with financial assistance that may be used to defray expenses toward tuition, fees, and/or books. These scholarships will be a one time award that is not renewable for succeeding semesters.
