A basketball player from San Antonio’s East Central High School that stood tall on his team,
Davante Wilson stood even taller in the class room. In high school he won the Yale Book Club Award
and secured a prominent role in his college recruitment process. He was sought after nationally by
high academic schools and Texas- Commerce offered him a full ride to attend their school. However,
Devante never let go of the fact that his mother had sacrificed so much for him and raising him to
the young man he had become that he wanted to pay back by remaining close to his home where he
could help. The University of Texas at San Antonio selected Wilson as a recipient of one of their
academic scholarships and that is where he spent the next four years. His Bachelor of Science
Degree with Highest Honors is the prize that he received for his hard work.
