Jim Law Memorial Scholarship raises funds
The Jim Law Memorial Scholarship Foundation is pleased to report the recent successful completion of our 2011 Fundraising Golf Competition. For the third straight year, The Sanctuary Golf Club at Cat Island hosted the event. The monies raised from the competition fund the “Jim Law Scholarship” awards. As a result of the foundation’s growth and continued success, it will continue to fund scholarships for some fortunate graduating students from our local high schools. The “Jim Law” scholarships are a part of and awarded through the good auspices of Beaufort Rotary’s Forsythe scholarship program.
