Successful Scholarship Program Announces Newest Student Recipients
The Chuck Courtney Honorary Scholarship Fund (CCHSF) recently announced the newest recipients for the Future Legends scholarship program. The special announcment took place at CCHSF’s 2015 Kickoff Party, which was hosted at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club and offered attendees hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and a pitching contest as part of the celebration.
The scholarship recipients announced this year included John Michael Horvath, who currently attends St. Gregory’s University in Oklahama and aspires to be a major league sportscaster, and Sharon Jahn, who attends UC Riverside and majors in Biochemistry. Both students were selected for the program from Pro Kids, a San Diego-based program that educates underserved youth on the game of golf. All Future Legend scholarship recipients to date have come from Pro Kids, though elegibility for scholarships does not require them to pursue a career in golf. Past students in the Future Legends program have gone on to major in Chemistry, Biosciences, Electrical Engineering, and other areas of the medical field. Future Legends strives to maintain a personal approach to their program and keep in regular communication with the students in their scholarship program, a method to which they attribute their program’s success.
The Kickoff Party not only educated guests on the growing success of the program but also served to raise awarness of Future Legend’s upcoming fundraiser, the 2nd Annual Future Legends Golf Tournament. The fundraiser will be held Nov. 16 at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club and will include dinner, cocktails, and entertainment following the golf tournament. To learn more visit www.chuckcourtneyhsf.org.
