The Eddie Holmes Legacy Endowment


Coach Holmes was proof that a good coach is always a good coach regardless of the sport or circumstances.  In his 32 years at UMS-Wright, also his alma mater, he produced 14 state golf championships and outstanding records in both boys and girls basketball.  He was selected as Coach of the Year eight times, and he was inducted into the UMS-Wright Athletic Hall of Fame, the Spring Hill College Hall of Fame, and the Alabama High School Athletic Association Hall of Fame.

Our goal is to raise $100,000 to fully fund an endowment in Coach Holmes’ name. The Endowment will be used each year to provide a named scholarship for a rising senior and to fund special projects around the UMS-Wright campus which will also bear Coach Holmes’ name.  Through donations made to the Endowment and money raised through the UMS-Wright Classic, we feel confident that we will reach our goal soon. 

Please join us as we honor the life and legacy of Coach Eddie Holmes.
