Association raises $30,000 for student scholarships
at 36th annual UNO Alumni Scholarship Swing
The UNO Alumni Association hosted the 36th annual UNO Alumni Scholarship Swing Aug. 29 at Indian Creek Golf Course, netting $30,000 in support of students.
The association now has raised nearly $900,000 since it began hosting the swing in 1999.
More than 100 golfers and nearly 50 sponsors participated in the tournament.
The money raised supports various association-sponsored student scholarships. That includes 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.
UNO graduate and association board member Chris Denney chaired the committee that oversees the tournament. Other committee members were Ben Burton, Andres Torres and Tiffany Wade.
