The Beaufort County School District’s fifth annual “Swinging with the Superintendent” golf tournament drew 24 teams to Callawassie Island Club on Monday, July 23, raising money for a scholarship program that pays two years of college tuition to qualified students.
The Building a Better Beaufort Scholarship – dubbed “B3” – covers up to two years of tuition costs at the Technical College of the Lowcountry for Beaufort County high school graduates who have at least a 2.75 GPA.
The tournament was held at the Tom Fazio-designed Callawassie Island Club, and prizes were awarded for low team scores, longest drives and closest-to-the-pin.
Monday’s sponsors included title sponsors Sodexo and Thompson Turner Construction as well as sponsors GCA Services, BrightView Landscape and former Board of Education member Bill Evans. Prizes were donated by Sonesta Hotels, Palmetto Dunes, Fripp Island, the Brown Golf Group, Wexford Plantation, Berkeley Hall, Wexford Plantation, Dataw Island, Callawassie Island, Oldfield Plantation, the Long Cove Golf Club and Moss Creek Plantation.
Revenues from the golf tournament are accumulating in a TCL Foundation endowment fund that supports the scholarship program.
Interested students from the Class of 2019 should apply to TCL, fill out the FAFSA form and apply for the B3 scholarship. For more information, visit www.tcl.edu/b3.
