Warren County education initiatives are $37,468 richer thanks to two donations from the WillowBrook Pro-Am Golf Tournament.
A check presentation was made Friday night at Nunley Stadium before the Pioneers homecoming game.
A $22,480 donation was made to the Citizens for Progress scholarship fund. A separate $14,987 donation was made to benefit teacher grants and special projects.
“A big thanks goes to our local community businesses that have supported this great event over these six years,” said Director of Schools Bobby Cox. “We could never have made these accomplishments without all the wonderful volunteers who work so hard to make it all happen.”
The WillowBrook Pro-Am Golf Tournament celebrated its sixth year in 2013. During its six-year history, the fundraiser has generated over $113,000 for the Citizen for Progress scholarship fund and over $75,000 for the Warren County School System.
The Citizens for Progress scholarship fund has helped finance scholarships for 150 Warren County students to attend Motlow College or Tennessee Technology Center.
The more than $75,000 that has gone into the general education fund has been used to provide new teaching equipment and gone to establish Channel 180, a TV channel that broadcasts events happening in local schools.
