[August 11, 2017]
- More than $20,000 was raised for athletic scholarships at Lincoln
College at the 16th annual Golf Outing for Scholarship. The event
was held Friday, July 28, at the Lincoln Elks Country Club. Proceeds
from this annual event are added to the Allen Pickering Athletic
Scholarship Endowment Fund which has grown to more than $200,000.
Every sport at Lincoln College has the ability to award student
athletes a stipend from the endowment.
“These scholarships are essential to attracting and retaining the
high quality student athletes that Lincoln College is known for,”
said Dave Klemm, co-chair of the event and Athletic Director at
Lincoln College. “Our students are true scholar-athletes – this year
we had 37 athletes named Academic All-Americans and our women’s
softball team was named the top academic team in the nation. Many of
our student athletes were at the event and got to meet and thank
those who participated.”
This year 288 golfers participated in the event which was the
highest number of participants to date. The winners of this year’s
Corporate Cup were from Graue Chevrolet. The Graue foursome turned
in a score of 57. The Elliott foursome, including LC alums Tye and
Brett Elliott, recorded a 58 to win the age 200 and over group. In
the under 200 group, the Knights Action Park foursome turned in the
lowest score of the day with a 54.

“We can’t thank our sponsors and participants enough,” said Rick
Samuels, co-chair of the event and Senior Development Officer for Lincoln
College. “The event sold out well in advance and we were able to fill every one
of our sponsorship opportunities, thanks to the strong support of the local
business community. I especially want to thank Country Financial for serving as
the overall event sponsor.”
In addition to Country Financial, major sponsors of the event included Core
Construction, State Bank of Lincoln, Par Golf Supply, Sysco, Town and Country
Bank, Cavallo Bus Lines, and Lincoln Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.
