Tee it up for Grady’s satellite college campus

Southwest Georgia Technical College’s (SWGTC) Foundation Board of Trustees will hold their 5th annual Grady County Golf Tournament at Cairo County Club on Oct. 18. Participation in the tournament will help support the SWGTC Foundation as it provides student scholarships, emergency assistance for  students, new equipment purchases, technical upgrades and improvements to SWGTC of Grady County.
This year, many program areas of the college will benefit from tournament proceeds including: Practical Nursing, Criminal Justice Technology, Business Administrative Technology, Early Childhood Care & Education, and scholarship development.
“SWGTC plays a vital role in the growth and the future of Grady County,” said Chris Addleton, SWGTC  Foundation Board member. “This tournament is a great way to enlist the help of our community in helping keep the college viable in Grady County so that it may continue to serve our businesses and industries.”
The tournament format is a 4-person Fort Lauderdale Scramble with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Prior to  tee-off, players will be treated to lunch at noon, followed by time to warm up with range balls.
Prizes will be awarded to the top 4 teams along with additional raffle prizes. Individual and team registration is welcomed and sponsors’ names will be prominently displayed on signage and tournament publications.
Additionally, there will be opportunities to buy mulligans and raffle tickets on the day of the  tournament.  
“We are pleased to be holding this golf tournament once again in Cairo and hope it will help raise  awareness of what Southwest Georgia Technical College provides to the community and how our foundation is there to provide assistance and support to our students in Grady County. This tournament  is a major fundraiser for our foundation and will generate much of the funds we need for foundation goals such as student scholarships. The support we receive from the community for this effort goes a long way to rewarding some of our most exceptional and deserving students by providing financial assistance, which will allow them to meet their educational goals,” said Dr. Craig Wentworth, president of SWGTC.
Registrations and sponsorships are now being accepted. If you have any questions, please call Christina  Leach at 229-227-2415 or Amy Maison at 229-225-3977.
