UTM Rodeo Receives Record Gift

April 18th, 2013 - By Charles Choate

rodeoThe UT-Martin rodeo program has received a generous gift from a long time supporter.

University officials say a $100,000 pledge has been extended from the Betsy Ross Foundation, formed by the late Dave Wilcox in honor of his wife.

Wilcox was an avid supporter of the rodeo program, and friend of coach John Luthi, while founding and serving as board chairman at Allegro Fine Foods in Paris.

He passed away in 2011.

The donation will be dispersed at $20,000 a year for a five year period, and is the largest gift ever received by the rodeo program.
