On Monday, Oct. 24 at The Cliffs at Glassy, the board members of Polk County Campus ICC Foundation hosted 16 teams at the third-annual Scholars at Glassy golf tournament to benefit their New Century Scholars program.
This event raised enough to fund three students’ two-year educations at Isothermal Community College. According to organizers, the generosity of Jeanne and Joe Mize, the Rotary Club of Tryon Foundation and Geoffrey Tennant contributed to the success of the event.
Local merchants and individuals provided the food, door prizes and merchandise for the goody bags given to each golfer. The Cliffs of Glassy offered its club for the event, and SideStreet Pizza and Pasta again this year donated all of the lunches.
