SKYCTC Golf Scramble Raises Money For Scholarships
By: Whitney Davis
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - On Saturday the Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC) held its fourth annual Golf Scramble.
The Golf Scramble was hosted at Crosswinds Golf Course, and raised money for student scholarships.
Executive Director of The Foundation at SKYCTC, Heather Rogers, said this was a cause close to her heart.
"We want to help our students be able to get their education debt free, so the more scholarships we can raise to help students come to school, pursue their higher education, and not have to go into debt and take out student loans, the better."
Rogers also noted that seeing the students who receive these scholarships walk away with a smile on their face makes all the work more than worth it.
"They are very appreciative of the support they receive from the scholarships. You know, a lot of these students, their the first ones in their family to come to college. So that's a big deal when they can get support from the school, from the community, to help them attend college."
And even though not everyone could make it out to the Golf Scramble on Saturday, there were still ways to make a contribution to the SKYCYC scholarship fund.
The community was asked to contact the SKYCTC office at 270-901-1116 in order to make a donation.
