STPGA Awards 2006 Scholarships

Congratulations to the 15 youths who are splitting $25,000 in scholarships awarded by the Southern Texas PGA. The STPGA announced the recipients on Friday.

“The number of scholarships we have available is a wonderful demonstration of the depth and breadth of the strong community support the STPGA Foundation and its scholarship program receives,” said Steve Termeer, the general manager and director of golf at the University of Texas Golf Club in Austin and the chairman of the STPGA Scholarship Committee.

“I want to congratulate each of the scholarship recipients,” said Termeer, “and to express appreciation on behalf of the recipients and the STPGA Foundation to the scholarship representatives and to the STPGA Scholarship Committee for their efforts to provide financial support to deserving students throughout southern Texas.”

The stated goal of the STPGA Foundation is “to encourage and promote the attainment of higher education goals for youth who have demonstrated a high level of achievement during high school or college, have financial need, and have shown an interest in the game of golf.”
