Last year, the foundation provided 55 scholarships to students enabling them to continue their education.
The weather on Monday, September 24 was perfect for a day on the links. The 6th Annual Central Tech Foundation, Ron Vandever Memorial Golf Tournament, held at the Cushing Country Club, brought out 164 golfers helping to raise money for the foundation.
The tournament had a great response this year with 32 sponsors at the platinum, gold, silver and bronze levels. SpiritBank was the tournament sponsor again this year. Through the tournament, the Central Tech Foundation raised more than $17,500 to assist needy Central Tech students as they prepare for technical careers. Last year, the foundation was able to provide financial assistance to 55 students from 18 local communities.
The tournament had four flights of golfers with two winners from each flight. In the A Flight, the Community Bank team of Jay Krumme, Matt Smith, Don Sullivan and Tyler Sullivan won with a sore of 52. Second place in the A Flight was BancFirst, with teammates Gilbert Harris, Tim Moore, Harvey Robinson and Richard Opela with a score of 55.
