Reinhardt Raises Scholarship Funds from United Methodist Scholarship Golf Outing; Congratulates Winners of Tournament
First Low Gross
Reinhardt University, a United Methodist-affiliated institution, hosted its 19th annual United Methodist Scholarship Golf Outing on Wednesday, May 23 at Bent Tree in Jasper, Ga. All proceeds raised from this event will support Reinhardt students who are United Methodist and those who are pursuing a full-time career in the ministry. The tournament welcomed 90 players.
“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 retired pastor. “The success of the golf outing is certainly due to the hard work of the University 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.”
First Low Net
The top awards for the tournament went to two teams. The team of Leigh Ann Hunter (from left), Steve Crain, Taylor Turner and Bobby James won the team award for “First Low Gross.” The award for “First Low Net” went to the team of Rick Gillespie (from left), Todd Smith, Wayne Monroe and John Stanford.
“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 University in some meaningful way!”
