A lot of you have asked where you would be able to see Wendell’s #11 racing car after bringing it back into the family. Well, we’ve got some ideas!
The concept for a Wendell Scott Center & Museum was mentioned in a recent survey in regards to repurposing Lou’s Antiques Mall. We are thrilled that the Danville community has Wendell’s legacy in mind and would like to share our own thoughts on a potential location site.
We have been focusing our efforts to house our museum in the Woolworth building. Located on Main St, this is an active part of downtown and would be a great place to display Wendell's legacy. Check out the renderings below to get an idea of our vision for the space.
We understand that our success is due in large part to the support of the residents of Danville and that there is so much power in public opinion! So we would love to get your input… Please comment below which location you think would be better suited to house a Wendell Scott Center & Museum: Lou’s Antiques or Woolworth?
Please help us welcome back one of Wendell Scott's first cars with his original number! Imagine this baby on a dirt track compared to today's racers
Being the model used for the Wendell-inspired character in Cars 3, River Scott, this car holds a special place in the Scott family's heart.
Welcome home #11
The Wendell Scott Foundation has partnered with the USDA Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to create a TSP certification training program, with an agriculture and STEM focus. The program will provide more in depth training, including lectures, experiential learning activities and site visits. The disciplines covered include: soil science, information technology, forestry, finance, environmental science (conservation and natural resources), engineering, and biology. The sessions will be conducted one Saturday a month following the school year and allows students to work with professors and student mentors to introduce them to various majors and careers related to agriculture, natural resources and STEM to improve their chances of qualifying for Pathways internships and career positions at USDA.
