Alumni golfers help create scholarships for students

It was another outstanding year at the Alumni and Friends Golf Tournament, held Monday, August 13, at Essex Golf and Country Club. The event had a full field of golfers and many more joined for dinner and prizes.

Over the last three years, the funds generated by this event have joined gifts from individuals and the government’s Ontario Trust Fund to create the Alumni Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship now has an endowment that has grown to a total of more than $120,000, and this year will support two deserving students, said Susan Lester, director of Alumni Affairs.

“Our thanks goes out to all the companies and individuals who supported the tournament and special thanks to our lead sponsor, Windsor Family Credit Union,” she said.
