Foundation Golf Tournament
Over the past 12 years, the North Arkansas College Foundation 3-Person Scramble Golf Tournament presented by FedEx Freight has raised more than $300,000 for scholarships and instructional technology to benefit Northark students. The annual event is held each September.
There are several ways you can help us with this important fund-raiser. Along with teams (@$195 per team) and individual players (@$65 per player; individuals are assigned to teams), we need support as a sponsor. Without sponsors, the tournament wouldn’t be successful.
Proceeds from the Northark 3-Person Scramble Golf Tournament will benefit new On Course Scholarships which reward students for progress toward their degree or certificate. These awards align with the state's new performance funding measures and are the first of their kind at an Arkansas public college.
"The pairing of increased college completion rates and performance funding measures is a natural fit for awarding On Course Scholarships funds raised during the golf tournament", said Dr. Jackie Elliott, president of North Arkansas College. "The scholarship is designed to serve as an incentive to encourage students each step they take toward completion of a certificate or degree. We want all students to succeed and achieve their education goals, and this scholarship is that extra push toward the finish line. By educating our workforce to compete in a global economy, we're playing a game in which everyone is a winner."
