Reinhardt College, a United Methodist-affiliated institution, hosted its annual United Methodist Scholarship Golf Outing on Tuesday, May 13 at Big Canoe. The event raised more than $35,000, with proceeds supporting scholarships for Reinhardt students who are United Methodist and those who are pursuing a full-time career in the ministry.
"One of our strongest selling points for support of the golf outing is that 100 percent of every dollar raised goes directly to student scholarships," said the Rev. Dr. Ron Flowers, golf tournament chairman and Northside United Methodist Church associate pastor. "The success of the golf outing is certainly due to the hard work of the College staff and the support of the local churches and ministers. People know a good cause when they see it, and they want to support it and make a difference in the lives of these outstanding students."
For the second year in a row, Brooks United Methodist Church, located in Senoia, Ga., won the traveling trophy awarded to the "First Low Net" team. Golfers Kevin Pearson (from left), John Kennedy, Tommy Hawkins and Danny Dantzler (not pictured) were the Brooks UMC winning team in 2007 and were winners again this year. Twenty United Methodist churches were represented at the golf outing.
"Players participate, year after year, partly because we provide a fun and competitive tournament," said Flowers, "but more importantly because they want to support the students and the College in some meaningful way!"
