TIME: 6:00 PM

WHERE: Coronado High School - Auditorium

Willie McCool was the Pilot of the Space Shuttle Columbia (January - February 2003) and a graduate of Lubbock's Coronado High School (1979). A scholarship was established to honor students, like Willie, who have shown academic promise and have intentions of majoring in math, science, engineering, computer science or pre-medicine. The scholarship is awarded each year to a graduating senior at Coronado High School, who is in the top 25% of their senior class and demonstrates outstanding citizenship.

West Texas Endurance is honored to make a donation to the Commander Willie McCool Memorial Scholarship on behalf of all participants of the 2013 Willie McCool Memorial Half Marathon & 5K.

"We were delighted to have this race named after our son. Long distance running helped forge the man that Willie McCool would become. Running at Coronado High School was key to his going to the Naval Academy," said his parents, Audrey and Barry McCool. "He met his future wife through running; running was always in his heart and an important part of his life. I hope this race will inspire others to follow their dreams and enjoy the benefits of running in their lives."

David Nelson, a principal of West Texas Endurance, said "We are pleased to make this donation to the LISD Commander Willie McCool Memorial Scholarship. It is an honor to enhance the legacy of Commander McCool through this effort. We hope that this scholarship will enable other outstanding Lubbock students to rise to great heights like Willie McCool and, through their careers, make lasting contributions to our country which reflect positively on the City of Lubbock."

Paul Faulkner of The Lovell Company said "Vicki and I were impressed with the graciousness of the McCool family and wanted to make the shadow box to show our appreciation of their involvement in the Lubbock community and with the Willie McCool race in particular." Faulkner added, "Vicki is a proud graduate of Coronado High School and I am a LHS grad. It has been a great experience to be involved in a small way."
