Two Dawson County High School graduates, Nate Umberger and Jake Williams, recently received scholarships from the David Bruce Wood Jr. Memorial Fund to recognize their accomplishments in the wrestling program at DCHS. The David Bruce Wood Jr. Memorial Fund was established in 2014 after Wood died in an accidental drowning on Lake Lanier at 20 years old. Wood was an avid wrestler and athlete in Dawson County, and the fund allows for his family and others to keep his memory alive by helping other local wrestlers with their college education.
