“A big thank you to all our tournament sponsors and participants for their continued support of our students and our scholarship program,” said Jeff Richards, VP of Strategic Development. “We are very appreciative of the community support that we receive for this event as well as all of the other events that we host throughout the year.”

 

72 golfers enjoyed their day on the course golfing in an 18-hole Texas scramble format. The day ended with steak dinner and a number of prize draws. The Weyburn Review represented the team with the lowest score.

 

“We are very proud of the amount of scholarship and bursary funding students have access to at Southeast College because pursuing a post-secondary education is an expensive endeavor,” stated Sheena Onrait, Manager Marketing and Communications. “The Swing for Scholarships event is an incredible demonstration of community support for our students and we are looking forward to an even bigger and better event next year.”

 

Southeast College is proud to be the Trainer of Choice in Southeast Saskatchewan, serving approximately 8,000 learners and producing more than 5,000 graduates annually.
