The Lebanon Wilson County Chamber of Commerce Sports Council Division held the Best All Around Student Athlete Awards Luncheon at Cumberland University’s Baird Chapel on May 11, 2018. One male and one female athlete from each high school in Wilson County were nominated by their Athletic Director, Coach, or Principal. Students are nominated for their outstanding academic and athletic qualities.

From the nominees, one male and one female were chosen to receive a $1,500 scholarship to the school of their choice. A Committee was chosen to review the scholarships and make a decision on specific qualifications. Ashley Foster and Noah Mulaski were selected to receive the $1,500 scholarships. The scholarships are funded by the Two Rivers Ford Open Bass Tournament hosted by the Wilson County Sports Council.
