Adam's Tools for School Scholarship Fund
Adam was a native Lee county resident who had an amazing sense of curiosity along with an adventurous nature. He was uniquely gifted in all things mechanical and had a huge innovative streak. His passions for the worlds of automotive and motorcycle systems ran deep. Nothing brought out that dimpled smile bigger than “That” sound… The sound of a perfectly tuned engine. Adam graduated with an Associate’s Degree in Automotive Systems Technology and was focused on his budding profession. To broaden his expertise, Adam had been working for Honda Suzuki of Sanford when an after work ride ended with injuries that would cut his young life short – in spite of the heroic efforts of the UNC trauma team and Adams fighting spirit. The Tools for School Scholarship fund has been set up to honor this young visionary who displayed a tenacious work ethic and deep respect for the profession of engine mechanics.
