About Rick Wilson
Hastings College is proud to award the Rick Wilson Memorial Scholarship in honor of Rick Wilson, a Hastings College student from Cozad, Neb., who died of leukemia during his freshman year in 1970. A 1969 graduate of Cozad High School, Rick Wilson was an outstanding scholar and member of the National Honor Society. One of two lettermen on the golf team, he also was active in music playing in the Pep Ban, Symphonic Band and the All-State Band and singing in the Senior High Chorus. In his community, he was active in the Tri-County DeMolays, First United Methodist Youth Fellowship, and 4-H. At Hastings College, Rick earned a perfect grade point average during the 1969 fall semester and was on the dean’s list.
Rick’s father, prominent Cozad, Neb., businessman D. Lloyd Wilson, established the endowed scholarship in his son’s name. The late Mr. Wilson also provided funds to build the Wilson Mathematics and Computer Science Center, which also was dedicated in Rick’s honor.
