Sterling graduated from Rock Bridge High School. He was active in his church youth group, achieved the rank of Eagle Scout and completed his first-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Sterling attended a local community college but decided he wanted to delay his education to do “something bigger than himself.” His decision to join the Army gave him a purpose and focus in life. To honor Sterling’s legacy, the Wyatt family established the Sterling Wyatt Memorial Scout Scholarship.
