Sweet Tee Off Tournament proceeds help fund continuing education for local youth!
The Eatonton- Putnam Chamber of Commerce chose four local students to receive a $1,000 scholarship toward their future college careers; Brooklyn McLaulin from Gatewood Schools, James Mead from Putnam County High School, Landon Beall from Lake Oconee Academy, and Catherine Hancock from Central Georgia Technical College.
The Chamber is able to provide the scholarship through the Sweet Tee Off Golf Tournament held in the spring. While the Chamber had to postpone the event this year, previous efforts from the event were able to fund the scholarships.
The scholarship recipients completed an application process that included writing essays about themselves and the community. Over 20 applications were submitted. All applicants should be proud of their accomplishments and success in continuing their education. Three retired educators and a board member anonymously judged the applications. Choosing four winners was not an easy decision based off of everyone’s education, community involvement and volunteerism.
Brooklynn McLaulin from Gatewood Schools is planning to attend the University of Florida this fall and will be majoring in Biology. James Mead plans to attend Georgia Tech in the fall, pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Physics. Landon Beall from Lake Oconee Academy is attending the University of Georgia in the fall. Catherine Hancock, a 2009 CPTC alumni, is planning to further her education by enrolling in their current Welding and Joining Diploma Program.
We would like to thank our 2020 Golf Tournament Teams and Sponsors for their support and generous contributions even though we were unable to hold the tournament.
