Fall Classic Golf Tournament
The Eighth Annual Fall Classic Golf Tournament was held on Friday, October 5, 2012 at Smithfields Country Club in Easley, SC. The Tri-County Technical College Foundation has hosted this tournament since 2005, raising nearly $228,000 to support special initiatives at the College.
The 2012 tournament’s proceeds are helping to support Connect to College (C2C), a dropout recovery program for youth between the ages of 17-21. The first of its kind in the state, C2C has helped many deserving young people to get back on track and focused on an education leading to a promising, productive future. C2C students take dual credit courses taught by Tri-County faculty in order to meet requirements for their high school diplomas (awarded by their home high school in Anderson, Oconee, or Pickens counties) and to generate college credit toward a postsecondary credential.
The College remains committed to providing residents throughout the service area with the type of quality education and training that will improve their lives. Through C2C, youth who have not been successful in traditional high school environments get a second chance to earn a diploma, to grow as individuals, and to gain confidence in their ability to succeed in the future. Participation in the 2012 tournament directly provided support for these deserving students by purchasing textbooks and other course materials, by establishing an “emergency fund,” and by providing achievement and graduation awards.We will begin with registration and a catered lunch at 11:00 a.m. The captain's choice shotgun start will be at 12:00 p.m., with an awards reception sponsored by J. Peters following the conclusion of play.
We look forward to the 2013 tournament which will be held on October 4th at a location TBD.
