Carole and David Wayland; family and friends of Patrick Wayland

Carole and David Wayland together with family and friends created the Patrick Wayland Memorial Scholarship in 2012 in loving memory of this outstanding young man. In August 2011, Patrick sustained injuries in a military training exercise from which he was unable to recover.

In August 2012, more than 150 hometown and military friends participated in the first annual GOLF TO HONOR Patrick Wayland Memorial Golf Tournament. Paying tribute to Patrick’s life, tournament organizers contributed proceeds from the event to the Patrick Wayland Memorial Scholarship Fund at the Foundation. Friends and family continue to honor Patrick’s legacy at this annual golf tournament.

Impact

Each year, Patrick’s scholarship is awarded to outstanding student athletes at Midland High School who exemplify the qualities of Patrick’s life as an outstanding scholar, athlete, Marine Corps officer, and person of faith and character.
