Golf Classic Supports Alumni Scholarships


Arkansas Tech University alumni and friends will tee it up at Russellville Country Club on Friday, Oct. 5, for the 2012 Arkansas Tech Homecoming Golf Classic.
 
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.
 
“The 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 Country Club.
 
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.
