Fifth annual golf scramble reaches milestone

Oct. 22, 2018

     Unseasonably warm weather made for a perfect day to tee off during Ashland Community and Technical College’s golf scramble on Monday, Oct. 8.
     This was the fifth annual event, which raises money for ACTC’s foundation that administers student scholarships.
     Proceeds from this year’s event at Bellefonte Country Club, more than $29,000, brought total earnings for student scholarships through the golf scramble to a milestone $100,000 since the event began.
     “We are so thankful for the leadership that Dr. Bruce Schaffer has provided in working with our Foundation Board and sponsors to make our annual golf event a huge success,” Dr. Larry Ferguson, ACTC president and CEO, said. “Through their efforts we are providing opportunities for scholarships that will change students’ lives.”
     Funds were raised through team registration, 25 hole sponsors and five corporate sponsors: Clark’s Pump-N-Shop, AEP Kentucky Power, Karlene Putnam and Jay (John) and Diane Hannah, Braidy Industries and Community Trust Bank.
     Twenty teams participated with Marathon Refinery’s team taking first place. Team members were Jeff Porter, Dave Rice, Greg Jackson and Kenny Patrick.
DESCO Credit Union took second place, with Clark’s Pump N Shop taking third place.
     It was a great day with beautiful weather to play golf,” said Brooke Seasor, director of resource development at ACTC. “Because of this event, we are seeing students’ lives change with the help of all our golfers, hole sponsors and corporate sponsors.”
