W&L Law Grad's Work with Children's Organizations Highlighted
Kerry Wilson, a 1981 graduate of the Washington and Lee School of Law, is the subject of this week’s Monday Profile in The Ledger of Winter Haven, Fla.
Kerry, a Winter Haven native, recently became president of 6/10 Corp., an investment company. He has been a lawyer with Peterson & Myers in his hometown since 1987, and his practice has primarily involved structuring business deals. “I’ve always felt good about closing a deal,” he told the Ledger. “The client is happy and wants to pay you.”
The Ledger profile also spotlights Kerry’s work with several organizations that help children in the Winter Haven area. He has served on the board of the Citrus Center Boys & Girls Clubs and has twice been the organization’s president. According to the article, Kerry spent plenty of time in the Boys Club when he was growing up and said that he saw the club save some kids’ lives.
In addition, he was a founding director and president of Speak Up for Children in the Tenth Judicial Circuit, Inc., which promotes guardian representation for all of the abused, neglected or abandoned children in a three-county area of Florida.
Kerry and his wife, Elizabeth, have two sons: Max, who graduated from W&L in 1999, and Calder.
