Golf tournament supports scholarship

The Austin Education Foundation thanks everyone involved in making the annual golf tournament a huge success. Our tournament was held July 18 at the Emporium Country Club. This year’s tournament winners were Mike Keefer, Mary Jo Kahnell, Sharon Daniels and Max. Second place went to Pat Clemente, Tom Kerstetter, Joe Hough and Matt Grimone. Winner of the longest drive was Brian Hill, and the winner of the longest putt was Brian Switzer.

A special “thank you” goes to all sponsors; we would not be successful without your support.

A big thank you to all the golfers who participated in this year’s event. There were 28 teams who participated.

With everyone’s continued support, the Austin Education Foundation is able to award a scholarship to a graduating senior who continues their education. The successful recipient is awarded this scholarship for four years for a total award of $3,500.
