In addition, this year's special honoree was Mr. Bill Saxton who was a founding member of the SWCSEF in 1986. A huge thank you to all of this year's volunteers, golfers and sponsors. And an enormous thanks to Pinnacle's Green Tee League for spearheading this year's event!
More than $65,000 In Student Scholarships Awarded in 2019

These scholarships, given to seniors pursuing a college education, were awarded as part of their respective high school's award ceremonies as the school year ended.
These scholarships, as well as the grants awarded to teachers in the fall, are entirely possible as a result of your continued support and donations to the SWCSEF.
