Max Emerson Champions Find a Way Scholarship 

In loving memory of Max Emerson



Max Emerson began wrestling at the age of 6. Through his sixteen-year career, he excelled as a wrestler leaving an indelible mark on the sport. Max's accomplishments included winning an Individual State Championship, achieving an undefeated season (37-0), and being named the Courier Journal’s Kentuckiana Wrestler of the Year.  At the University of the Cumberlands, he was a 2-time national qualifier for the NAIA and was recognized as an Academic All-American. In 2020, Max became a teacher at Oldham County High School, where he inspired countless students with his enthusiasm for education and his unwavering support for their success. Max’s dedication to wrestling continued as he served as an Assistant Wrestling Coach at his alma mater. The OCHS Wrestling room was his second home and the wrestlers his family.  Max had a genuine love for his athletes, students, colleagues, and family, and he cherished the time spent with them. He will be remembered as a champion for the underdog and someone who brought joy and encouragement to all those around him. Max worked tirelessly every day to be a better wrestler, coach, Christian, and friend.  He lived by the motto “champions find a way.”  It is our honor to offer a scholarship in Max’s memory to a senior wrestler who embodies Max's spirit and has overcome adversity to find a way to succeed.
