Remembering Ben Wilson
We, at the Chatham Avalon Park Community Council, will like to all of our viewers, readers, residents and members to take a moment of your day to take time to reflect and remember one of our greatest talents of all time to come out of Chatham, Ben Wilson, the number one in the nation high school basketball player from Simeon Academy who was taken from us by violence 25 years ago this week. Our prayers then as today remain with his family. He was known to many of us as "Benjy" who grew up on the 7700 block of Eberhart. RIP, Benjy!
