West Charlotte High to honor Unseld "Bingo" Smith at 1st "WESPY" awards May 15

West Charlotte will honor former boys basketball star Unseld “Bingo” Smith for his perseverance in continuing his education after a tragic car accident in the 1990s at the first "WESPY" awards May 15.

Smith helped the Lions to the 1991 N.C. 4A state championship. Later, while heading home from college, Smith was involved in an accident where his car hydroplaned and crashed. It left him a quadriplegic.

The “WESPY” is a play on ESPN’s “ESPY” awards and West Charlotte plans to annually give a Unseld “Bingo” Smith Perserverance Award to a student who showcases leadership in athletics as well as education, plus someone who demonstrates resiliency daily.

The first awards will be presented May 15 at 6 p.m. at the Varick Conference Center. Smith will be honored by former North Carolina Tar Heel and NBA player Jeff McInnis. McInnis was a point guard and MVP of the ‘91 state champion. Current North Carolina center and former West Charlotte McDonald’s All-American Kennedy Meeks will return for the awards. Jacotron Potts, founder of ICAN Empowerment Company, will give the keynote address.
