Opportunities are available for golfers and tournament sponsorships for Chesapeake College’s Annual Golf Tournament for Athletic Scholarships on Monday, Oct. 7 at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Resort in Cambridge.
Each year the tournament raises money for the General Athletic Scholarships Fund. More than 60 student-athletes are currently receiving Chesapeake College scholarships. This financial assistance allows students to pursue higher education as they continue to excel in the sports that they love. In 2018, the tournament raised more than $22,000 for scholarships.
“Our student athletes strive for excellence in both academics and athletic competition. We’re proud of how they represent Chesapeake and their work enhances student life. Supporting their endeavors is critically important,” said President Cliff Coppersmith.
Chesapeake’s Skipjacks earn accolades for both their athletic and academic accomplishments. Since 2010, 38 Skipjacks have been named to the NJCAA Academic All-Americans, which requires a minimum 3.6 GPA.
The tournament brings together supporters from across the five-county service area. Businesses, organizations and individuals are signing on as event sponsors.
“Our sponsors are essential to ensuring that the tournament raises as much as possible to support our student athletes directly through scholarships. We are thrilled to have their support,” said Director for Advancement Elizabeth Devlin.
