Annual golf tournament is a game with a purpose

Bearcats always win big with the annual Rust College and Friends Celebrity Golf Tournament. Held on the second Friday in July, the tournament raises funds for scholarships while bringing together alumni, friends and supporters of the college.

The tournament, which began in 2003 in conjunction with the Rust College Reunion of Reunions, was held July 11 at the Kirkwood National Golf Club in Holly Springs. “Golf tournaments have become a very popular way to raise funds,” said Dr. Ishmell Edwards, Vice President for College Relations. “We appreciate the support this year and we are already planning next year’s event.”
