Serve Daily - - FOSTERING INNOVATION - By Clark H. Caras

With this year’s suc­cess in terms of sup­port from lo­cal busi­nesses and com­mu­nity lead­ers in the May golf tour­na­ment spon­sored by the Span­ish Fork Salem Area Cham­ber of Com­merce and the Span­ish Fork Ro­tary Club, a to­tal of 24 schol­ar­ships were awarded dur­ing the re­cent ban­quet held at the Chillon Re­cep­tion Cen­ter in Span­ish Fork to grad­u­ated se­niors from five of the com­mu­nity’s lo­cal high schools.

The golf tour­na­ment, held for more than 20 years at the Span­ish Oaks course, at­tracted ap­prox­i­mately 30 four-per­son teams this year that were each in the run­ning for a chance to win a Jeep Wran­gler from Doug Smith Auto with a hole in one a par 3 and another hole in one on the course’s other par 3 would have seen the win­ner go home with $10,000; but need­less to say nei­ther saw a hole in one, but some did come very close.

For the past 20 years, the tra­di­tion with the schol­ar­ships has been the award­ing of $1,000, but this year be­cause of grow­ing sup­port over these past many years and a good in­vest­ment of funds, the schol­ar­ships were all raised to $1,500 for the six young men and 18 young women who vied for and won the cash awards that are to go for ed­u­ca­tion.

The five high schools rep­re­sented in the award­ing of schol­ar­ships were Span­ish Fork High School, Salem Hills High School, Maple Moun­tain High School, Land­mark High School and Legacy High School.
