It’s been 29 years since the Connestee Falls Student Scholarship Program began, with its modest goal of raising $5,000 through a pro-am golf tournament. Last year, we hit new heights with our fundraising, and we divided $66,000 equally among Transylvania County Schools, Brevard College and Blue Ridge Community College for 2016-17 academic year scholarships. That was $15,000 more for scholarships than the year before. Our goal this year, of course, is to raise even more money so we can help even more students.
Visit this blog and the Connestee Falls Facebook Page regularly through the summer to stay up to date on our fundraising tournaments and new scholarship winners. This year, we’re also looking back. We’re checking in with some previous scholarship winners to see how they are doing. There are so many success stories we want to share with you. And we’re also asking donors about why they give. We hope you find all these stories inspiring.
