Tech University alumni and friends will tee it up at Russellville
Country Club on Friday, Oct. 5, for the 2012 Arkansas Tech Homecoming
Proceeds from the tournament benefit the Arkansas
Tech Alumni Association Scholarship Fund, which awarded a total of
$18,250 in scholarships to nine Tech freshmen this fall.
Homecoming Golf Classic is a great event because it brings alumni and
friends together for an enjoyable day that creates opportunities for the
next generation of the Tech family,” said Kelly Davis, director of
alumni relations and the Tech Loyalty Fund. “So many of us benefited
from scholarships during our time as students at Tech, and it is
wonderful to see the way that our alumni and friends have supported this
event and this cause over the years.”
The day will begin with
registration at 10:30 a.m. Lunch will be served beginning at 11 a.m.
There will be an official welcome at 11:45 a.m., and golfers will be
sent out for a noon shotgun start on the par-71 layout at Russellville
The three-person scramble tournament is open to
any Tech alumnus or Tech supporter. Cost is $75 per person, and hole
sponsorship opportunities are available.
