The Douglass Scholarship Golf Tournament got off to a rousing start Saturday morning at 8:30. The event was held at Cattails at Meadowview, in front of the Meadowview Convention Center in Kingsport.
23 golfers took part in this Reunion's event, and Golf Tournament Director and Douglass Alumnus George Smith says all the golfers had a good time, the weather being absolutely perfect for golfing. As always, the event brought out the competitive spirit that marks all Douglass athletes (too bad we didn't have a golf team back in the day), but it was all in good fun for a good cause, and a good time was had by all.
There were three divisions in the Golf Tournament (A, B, and C), and the winners were:
A Division - Muhammad Ali, 1st Place.. Phil Rogers, 2nd Place.. and Harvey Wilmer, 3rd Place.
B Division - Jim Hickman, 1st Place.. Don Hickman, 2nd Place.. and Pastor Ken Calvert, 3rd Place.
C Division - Frank Horton, 1st Place.. Ikea Smith, 2nd Place, and Thomas Bond, Junior, 3rd Place.
The Douglass Alumni Scholarship Golf Tournament is held to fund the scholarships the Alumni Association presents every two years to deserving high school graduates who are descendants of Douglass Alumni. The scholarships are also made available to those Douglass Alumni descendants who are enrolled at colleges and universities at the present time.
The three winners of this year's scholarships are Terrance Maxwell, Patrick Leeper and Courtney Wolfe, and you'll find more information on them in the Reunion article titled "Memorial Service."
