12th annual SISD Foundation Golf Tournament raises funds for scholarships

Community sponsors joined Team SISD board trustees, faculty, staff and administration for a fun day of golf to raise proceeds for scholarships at the 12th Annual SISD Foundation Golf Tournament.

The event raised $50,000 for scholarships for graduating seniors in the Socorro Independent School District.

Tom Eyeington, SISD Chief Operations Officer and a key organizer of the golf tournament, said the annual event is beneficial for students to excel in college and, later, their careers.

“The students are well deserving of it and this gives them the opportunity to have some money for their future,” Eyeington said.

The golf tournament is a major fund raiser for the SISD Foundation’s scholarships. It attracts golfers and supporters of Team SISD from the Socorro community, the region, and across the state.

“I keep coming back because I enjoy working with this fantastic school district and this event gives us the ability to give back to the community through the Foundation,” said Kit Caldwell of Piper Jaffray Investment Banking Company, who has participated in the golf tournament every year since its inception.

The SISD Foundation was established 14 years ago and has awarded $508,000 in scholarships to more than 300 students. In May, the Foundation gave $90,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors from the Class of 2019.

Foundation scholarship funds also are collected through employee and community donations.

Students interested in applying for the scholarships and community members or employees who wish to donate to the Foundation, should visit the Foundation web page.

The tournament took place on October 4th; to view photos of the 12th annual SISD Foundation Golf Tournament event photos, click here.
