Benefit for the Tanner Wray Foundation
The Tanner Wray Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit created in memory of Joseph Tanner Wray, a 2015 graduate of Lawrence County High School. This Foundation was created to continue Tanner’s legacy of making a positive impact on other people’s lives. The Comedy Night is a fun-filled night of laughs and just good clean comedy. All proceeds will go directly to the Tanner Wray Foundation.
Who is Tanner Wray?
Tanner was the top academic student in the Class of 2015, the school’s first top Distinguished Scholar, Captain of the Wildcat Football Team and an All-District Player. His Senior year, Tanner played both Quarterback and Defensive Linebacker. In addition, Tanner had hundreds of community service hours between various school clubs and church. On February 23, 2018, while boxing in a charity boxing event for his fraternity at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville where he was a Junior majoring in Honors Aerospace Engineering, Tanner collapsed between the second and third rounds and passed away from sudden cardiac arrest.
In his speech at his high school graduation, Tanner said, “I want to leave this world as a person who is remembered for the positive impact I’ve made on other people’s lives.” That is now our mission. To continue the legacy of this extraordinary young man by providing scholarships to students in Lawrence and surrounding counties and the University of Tennessee.
