After the postponement of the Alumni Golf Classic from June because of rain, the July 28 edition turned out to be a spectacular day at the West Chase Golf Course in Brownsburg, Ind.

Senior Isabelle Leffler was the recipient of the 2017 Kenneth R. Leffler Scholarship. Since 1989, the Alumni Golf Classic has funded a substantial scholarship awarded to an incoming senior who has a Scecina legacy.

“The Scecina Golf Classic is great fun and a perfect way to remember and honor Ken Leffler, who always made everyone feel welcomed and made sure they had fun working,” said Ott Hurrle ’70, Scecina teacher and football and boys golf coach.

The 2017 golf outing drew 113 players and 24 sponsors. Special thanks to West Chase owners, Rick ’69 and Patty (Nonte) Smith ’71, for hosting the Alumni Golf Classic for a second year. Thanks also to the Alumni Golf Classic committee: Jason Bledsoe, Ott Hurrle ’70, Jeff Lathrop ’96, Brian Lyons ’83, and Brian Rosswurm ’05.

“Everyone I spoke to said the course was in great shape, the food was really good and they had a good time,” said Jim McGuinness '68, Scecina’s director of development and alumni relations.

“I think it was a great success even though the first date was rained out,” McGuinness added. “We still had one of the largest attendance in the past several years with 113 players. The original date of June 23 had been sold out three weeks in advance. That’s two years in a row the event was sold out in advance of the outing.”

Scholarship recipient Isabelle Leffler is very involved in student activities at Scecina, including sports, student government and especially the theater department. She is a National Honor Society member and is the student body president for the coming school year.
