The DHS Friends Hilda Crocker Wilson Scholarship Endowment was created and named in memory of Hilda Crocker Wilson, a beloved faculty member at Dunn High School from 1954 through 1969. She taught courses in office and business skills. In addition to her role a teacher, Mrs. Wilson was active in church and community affairs, and was named Dunn Woman of the Year in 2001. She was loved and admired by all who knew her.
Upon her death in 2014, Mrs. Wilson bequeathed a substantial sum of money to DHS Friends. In fond memory of Mrs. Wilson, and in appreciation for the love, the dedication, and the mentoring she gave to thousands of Dunn High School students, her generous donation has been used to establish a scholarship endowment, under agreement with the North Carolin Community Foundation. The endowment is designed to proved an ongoing stream of income that will fund the Hilda Crocker Wilson Scholarship perpetually.
