Announcing The Tracy Forrest Scholarship Endowment
In October of 2020, Tracy Forrest, a longtime resident of Winter Park and the founder of one of Central Florida’s largest commercial construction firms, Winter Park Construction (WPC), passed away from brain cancer. Tracy is also remembered as an accomplished pilot and a mentor to the next generation of aviators.
