The committee also made a contribution of $500.00 to the charity or organization of his choice. He chose the E.P. Roberts Center. Oscar worked for the Lamar County Board of Education for 40 years as an athletic coach and has been volunteering at the E.P. Roberts Center for the past 8 years. Oscar, his wife Nellie and their granddaughter were all in attendance to accept the award. Kayla Brown, Administrative Assistant at the E.P. Roberts Center, accepted the donation on behalf of the organization. ’The event was a big success and I would like to thank all of the committee members, volunteers, sponsors, and Oscar Wimberly for making this tournament one of the best yet’ stated Chamber President Amanda Rose. ‘I look forward to many more years of growth with this tournament and the opportunity to honor more well deserving ‘difference makers’ in our community.’
