SKYCTC Fund Scholarships Through Annual Golf Course | New


The Southcentral Kentucky Community & Technical College Scramble for Student Scholarships golf course returns on October 22 at CrossWinds Golf Course.

The event was canceled last fall amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but the race will be open to the public this year while also featuring drive and putting contests closest to the spit, the longest .

SKYCTC Foundation Executive Director Heather Rogers said the golf outing is one of the foundation’s biggest annual fundraisers.

Over the past eight years, the SKYCTC Golf Scramble for Student Scholarships has raised $ 500,000 to help students achieve their educational goals, she said.

“This is one of our biggest events where we can reach out to the community and we can involve multiple people,” Rogers said. “In 2014, the foundation raised over $ 168,000. Over the past year, we have raised nearly $ 675,000. It’s with all the donations we’ve made, not just through the golf course. “

She said that all profits collected from the rush go towards scholarships for college students.

“The more scholarships we have to offer, it obviously makes it easier to register,” she said. “Overall, our scholarships through the foundation have seen strong growth in scholarship funds available to our students.”

Rogers said that during this academic year, SKYCTC increased the scholarships awarded by 39% from the previous year, and 78% of students receive financial aid such as scholarships, Pell or Cap scholarships and KEES scholarships.

The scramble, which consists of a full round of golf, costs $ 100 per person in teams of four.

Individuals will be matched with team members and registration for the event will be at 7:30 am. A shotgun start will begin at 8:30 am.

Rogers said the rush would take place on October 22, rain or shine.

Cash prizes will be awarded to the first, second and third. There will be draws for the door prizes.

“We’re just happy to have the event back,” Rogers said. “We will have the same great opportunities for the players. Even though people are not great golfers, there are always opportunities to have fun and support the foundation. I think it’s very exciting to see the community really embrace SKYCTC.
