Nearly $11,000 raised for student scholarships

WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Despite inclement weather in the morning and the threat of storms all day, the skies cleared to allow more than 75 golfers to participate in Mid-State Technical College (MSTC) Foundation's 27th Annual Golf Event on June 18 at Ridge’s Golf Course. Net proceeds of this event were $10,862. Since the annual golf tournaments began in 1988, nearly $290,000 has been raised in support of the Foundation’s Scholarship Program.

“We are so grateful to the wonderful group of companies and individuals who made this event a success,” said MSTC Foundation & Alumni Director Chris Maguire. “MSTC students, including high school seniors beginning their education each fall, as well as continuing students completing their last semesters of coursework, benefit from these proceeds.”

“We could not continue to provide extensive scholarship opportunities to MSTC students without the help of participants, sponsors, and volunteers,” said Maguire. “I am thankful for the many individuals and organization who continue to support our efforts to raise additional scholarship funds.”
