A Swinging Success

Association raises $35,000 for student scholarships

at 33rd annual UNO Alumni Scholarship Swing

The UNO Alumni Association hosted the UNO Alumni Scholarship Swing Sept. 9 at Tiburon Golf Club, netting $35,000 in support of students.

The association now has raised nearly $800,000 since it began hosting the Swing 18 years ago. Almost 100 golfers and 50 sponsors participated in the tournament. The money raised supports various association-sponsored student scholarships.
UNO graduates David Craft (’90, ’92) and Scott Durbin (’84) chaired the committee that oversees the tournament. Other committee members include Ben Burton (’07), Blake Edwards (’99), Rochelle Eigsti, Mack LaRock (’01), Chris O’Brien (’97), Jacob Rehder (’03), and Steven Schmitz (’95).

Among the scholarships the Swing supports are UNO Alumni Association Scholarships, $2,500/year grants to graduating high school seniors who have demonstrated leadership and involvement during high school. The scholarships are renewable for up to four years and a new class of scholars is introduced each year.

UNO Alumni Scholars were at the tournament to thank Swing sponsors and participants.

The foursome from TD Ameritrade was the tourney's winning foursome, shooting 13-under to win the First Flight. The group was composed of Steve Hall, Jeff Goeser, Jon Peterson and Michael Truscott. The Millard Public Schools Foundation foursome of  Keith Lutz, Duncan Young, Angelo Passarelli and Jim Stufin won the second flight.

   
 

Scholarship Swing 2012 nets $40,000

More than $750,000 raised since 1995

The UNO Alumni Association hosted the 32nd annual UNO Chancellor’s Scholarship Swing Monday, Sept. 10, at Tiburon Golf Club, netting more than $40,000 in its largest single fundraising event of the year.

The association now has raised more than $750,000 since it began hosting the Swing 17 years ago. Almost 120 golfers and 50 sponsors (below) participated in the tournament. The money raised supports various association-sponsored student scholarships.

“The Alumni Association is touching lives and preparing students for the future,” UNO Chancellor John Christensen said.

UNO graduates David Craft (’90, ’92) and Scott Durbin (’84) chaired the committee that oversees the tournament’s organization. Other committee members included Blake Edwards (’90, ’92), Rochelle Eigsti, Larry Gomez (’71), Mack LaRock (’01), Rob Randels (’91), Jacob Rehder (’03) and Steven Schmitz (’95).

Christensen praised the committee for its work. “An event of this scope requires months of diligent planning and effort,” Christensen said, “and they make it look easy.”

The tournament was founded in 1980 and originally provided donations to UNO’s Emergency Student Loan Fund. Among the scholarships the Swing supports today are four UNO Alumni Association Scholarships, $2,500/year grants to graduating high school seniors who have demonstrated leadership and involvement during high school.

Several UNO Alumni Scholars were at the tournament to thank Swing sponsors and participants. Twelve UNO Air Force ROTC students also provided assistance during the tournament.
