Scecina’s annual golf outing on July 17 at Ironwood Golf Club was a time of fellowship and fun as a record number of 160 golfers turned out for the event, which benefits the Kenneth R. Leffler Scholarship.
This year’s recipient of the Leffler Scholarship is Delaney Rohlman ’16. Delaney is the daughter of Jay and Janet (Holmes) Rohlman. Janet is a 1984 graduate of Scecina. Delaney plays varsity basketball and soccer at Scecina, and also plays travel soccer and AAU basketball.
The Kenneth Leffler Scholarship began in 1989 and continues to be funded by the Scecina Memorial High School Alumni Golf Outing. To date this scholarship has funded more than $150,000 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 Alumni Golf Classic also drew the largest number of sponsors in the history of the event: seven Eagle sponsors at $1,000 each; six Birdie sponsors at $500 each and 14 Par sponsors at $250 each.
Delaney is the 26th recipient of the Leffler Scholarship. She has racked up many accomplishments during her three years at Scecina, including:
2013-14 Basketball - Best Defensive Player
2014-15 Basketball – Miss Hustle
MVP for Girls Soccer three consecutive years -- 2012, 2013 and 2014
