HHEF Golf Outing Raises Funds for Students

The members of the Hamilton Heights Educational Foundation would like to extend their sincere appreciation to all those individuals who helped make this year’s golf outing a wonderful success.  Moneys generated through the annual event, now in its 34th year, gives students and teachers a chance to grow and explore beyond traditional boundaries through grant money.

“We were pleased with the outcome,” said Melissa Martin, HHEF president, of this annual fundraising event. Hamilton Heights Educational Foundation along with the help of the entire board, has organized the annual event during her more than 10 year-year tenure (eighth year as president) with the Foundation.  “We are so grateful to Mark Wiseman and the dedicated staff at Bear Slide and the opportunity to play on one of the state’s most awesome courses that is right in our back yard. They are an incredible community partner for the support they give us on this day along with all the other things they do throughout the year for our students and staff.”

Daniel Engel, Mike Burns, Eddie Hughes, and Austin Parten from KDC Truck Trailer & Bus Repair took first place at this year’s scramble. The team of Lance Jones, Garrett James, John Kemker, and Vincent Harley came in second. 

Austin Parden had the longest drive for men and Ellie Arrowood had the longest drive for the women’s division. Seth Ireland was closest to the pin for men. Jeff Bragg won the putting contest.

“We would like to extend our sincere appreciation to all our sponsors, players, and volunteers who helped make another successful event to benefit teachers and students again,” added Martin.
