Fall Classic Golf Tournament
The Ninth Annual Fall Classic Golf Tournament will be on Friday, September 20, 2013, at Crosscreek in Seneca, 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 2013 tournament’s proceeds will help 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 2013 tournament will directly provide support for these deserving students by purchasing textbooks and other course materials, by establishing an “emergency fund,” and by providing achievement and graduation awards.
