Donation Information
Walter Reece (Walt) Montgomery Scholarship Fund
Walter Reese (Walt) Montgomery was born in Carroll County (McKenzie) Tennessee on August 24, 1924, and grew up on a cotton farm where his father was a sharecropper. As a child, Walt's love of flying was born the day he saw a biplane land in a field near where he was plowing, and the pilot offered him a ride. He later went into the Army Air Corp and became a pilot flying B-17 Flying Fortresses over Europe. He returned home after World War II and became the first member of his family to graduate from college. This scholarship was created by his sons in Walt's memory and to help West Tennessee youth attend college and pursue a career in aviation.
