Carolina Panthers play against the Chicago Bears at Bank of America Stadium on Sunday, October 5, 2014 in Charlotte, NC.

Join Communities In Schools of Durham for an exclusive evening with Carolina Panthers' Coach Steve Wilks. North Carolina­ native Steve Wilks knows what it takes to mold and grow a young person’s potential and dreams into a game-winning reality. A star player himself, Wilks finished his career at Appalachian State as defensive back with 103 tackles, 4 interceptions, and 4 blocked kicks. He rose quickly through the coaching ranks, working with the Chicago Bears, San Diego Chargers, and landing back home with the Carolina Panthers in 2012. Wilks was promoted to assistant head coach in 2015 and the following year led the Panthers to their first Super Bowl appearance since 2004. His philosophy as a coach reflects his own journey overcoming challenges and rising to the top of his profession—connecting him to the mission of Communities In Schools and our team of Graduation and Succ! ess Coaches, who help Durham’s youth reach their potential. One ticket includes heavy hors d'oeuvres, two drink tickets, one free cornhole toss and one unforgettable night!
