The Cable UCC Reverend Robert Wilson Scholarship


 

This scholarship is funded by proceeds from Cable UCC’s annual Mardi Gras Pancake Supper.  First awarded in 2006, the scholarship is established to honor

Rich and Jordan Miller small

1998-99 interim Cable UCC pastor Reverend Robert “Bob” Wilson.  It was Bob’s intention to award students more likely to go into the trades than to continue on with a four- year college degree.  This practice continues to this day.  

 

In recent times, with the success of the pancake supper, two $500 scholarships have been awarded each year.  Since its inception, $7,250 in scholarships has been awarded to 16 different Drummond high School graduating seniors.

 

 

 


Bob Wilson

Who was Bob Wilson?  It’s been more than 15 years since Bob passed away, and 20 years since he was Cable UCC’s pastor.  Bob filled in for Pastor Lynn Larson when Lynn was on a sabbatical leave from October 1998 to April 1999

 

Bob was much more than an interim pastor.  He graduated from Yale Divinity School and Columbia University. He served as a military chaplain at the US Army Headquarters in Europe as well as the Pentagon, and was a member of the staff and faculty at the US Army Chaplain School.  Upon retiring from the Army, he served as an interim pastor of Methodist and Presbyterian churches in northwest Wisconsin for 25 years, including eight years as pastor of the Mellen Congregational Church.
