Edna Boykin's gift to WilsonEdna Earle Boykin died in December 2011. But it took a good part of
this year to carry out the plans she put in place to support the
Wilson Arts Council. In her will, Boykin left her Raleigh Road home
and its contents to the Arts Council of Wilson. Money raised as a
result of selling her estate will be used to start an endowment fund
to bring quality entertainment to the Boykin Center.
