The 10th annual OTC Foundation Golf Tournament at Hickory Hills Country Club brought a record number of players together for one common goal: supporting the students of Ozarks Technical Community College. The 28 teams of four, along with event sponsors, raised more than $17,000 for student scholarships.
“More than 60 percent of our students qualify for some form of financial aid, and providing scholarships through the OTC Foundation is critical to meeting that need,” explained Stephanie Sumners, chief of staff/executive director of the OTC Foundation. “Financial aid is often the deciding factor in whether or not a student can attend college. The money raised by the annual golf tournament helps us provide these students with the financial support they need to earn a degree.”
Since the tournament’s inception 10 years ago, players and sponsors have helped raise more than $100,000 total for student scholarships.
“We would like thank all of our golfers and sponsors for investing in student success,” said Dr. Hal Higdon, chancellor of Ozarks Technical Community College. “Your continued support helps us remove the financial barriers faced by so many of our students so they can focus on achieving their educational goals.”
