John Dangler '67, Colleen (Dangler) Kehrer '88, Jason Kehrer '88, and Glen Johnston won the Alumni Golf Classic. Performance Marketing Group was an Eagle Sponsor.
The 2016 Alumni Golf Classic changed course from previous years with a switch to West Chase Golf Club in Brownsburg, owned by Scecina graduate Rick Smith ’69 and his wife, Patty (Nonte) Smith ’71.
“Many golfers commented on how much they liked the course,” said Scecina Director of Development Jim McGuinness ’68. “The feedback from golfers was, ‘Man, it’s a challenging course, and I loved it.’“
The 2016 Golf Classic drew 136 participants and attracted one of the largest number of sponsors at 26. Sponsorships from alumni and businesses for the outing set a new record of financial support of this event totaling more than $13,000.
“The Golf Classic brought together 136 friends, alumni and business partners,” McGuinness said, “and that’s honestly the reason we have this golf outing, to have a good time, and they had a really good time this year.”
The Golf Classic benefits the Kenneth R. Leffler Scholarship. The Leffler Scholarship began in 1989 and continues to be funded by the Alumni Golf Classic. To date this scholarship has funded more than $155,000 in scholarships for students. Each year, an incoming senior is awarded a scholarship of $5,500 toward his or her tuition. Without the participation of our golfers and sponsors, this would not be possible.
This year’s recipient of the Leffler Scholarship is Will Ferree ’17. Will is the son of John and Shirley (Ritzi) ’85 Ferree. His sister, ’Carly 19, will be a sophomore at Scecina. Will plays varsity football and baseball. He is co-captain of the 2016 Scecina Crusaders football team.
The Golf Classic for the first time sold out two weeks before the June 17 event, so McGuinness encourages golfers to make sure they turn in entries soon for next year’s event, which will be Friday, June 23, 2017, at West Chase.
