The Spring Hill Education Foundation proudly announced the ten winners of its scholarship program during the organization’s 17th Annual Golf Tournament. With the support of school board members, patrons and businesses, the Foundation has provided more than $100,000 in scholarships to Spring Hill High School graduates.
With the support of school board members and community patrons and businesses, the Foundation has grown into a program that has provided assistance to more than 150 Spring Hill High School graduates. Each year, ten seniors are chosen to receive $1,500 scholarships to apply toward higher education. This year’s winners include: Macy Carbajo, Meagan Crooks, Schuylar Duncan, Samantha Goble, Violetta Hamilton, Samuel Jesberg, Jordyn Showers, Alec Weaver, Makaela Willis  and Sarah Wray.
The primary source of funding for the scholarship program is the Spring Hill Education Foundation Golf Tournament, which began in 1997. Since the opening of the award-winning Sycamore Ridge Golf Course in 2000, this annual event has enjoyed local tournament play at the course. This year, the 17th annual tournament was held on May 6th and more than 115 golfers took to the course. In addition, corporate and hole sponsorships plus a silent auction led to profits that will be utilized for future scholarships.
