Wrapup - President's Golf Tournament 2018

By Nancy Bilderbeck - NMT Alumna Class of  1976   

Imagine that your graduation is in sight.  To date you embraced all New Mexico Tech (NMT) had to offer: enjoyed the student camaraderie, explored the extracurricular activities … but mostly “hit the books”.  Then the sobering reality hits – your funding has run out!!

Unfortunately most government scholarship programs only fund four years of university study.  The New Mexico lottery funding is also time sensitive. Funding agencies do not take into account the rigorous of completing a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) degree which often take 5 years.

On September 13 and 14th golfers took to the links at the New Mexico Tech Golf Course to enjoy the challenges of golf and to raise funds for the President’s Scholarship Fund.  It is this fund which makes tuition assistance available to students nearing completion of their degrees.

Attending this year’s event included students, alumni, staff, faculty and spouses … all with a link to the University and all committed to supporting the President’s Scholarship Fund.  Some were golfers … some WERE NOT!

Golf was played in 3 flights (groups): 1 on Thursday and 2 on Friday.  Teams of 4 played a foursome format where the “best ball” was selected.  Golfers were fuelled by buffet breakfasts, lunches and dinners … enhanced by stories of miraculous golf shots!

Thursday afternoon offered a chance to join in a NMT golf tradition: that of playing off of M Mountain.  Two challenges, one of “longest drive” and one “closest to the pin” are appropriately named the Cliff Challenge.

The golf tournament would not be possible without the generous donation of time by current Tech students.  They helped serve beverages and food, as well as ensured golfers' needs were seen to. 

Dr. Dan Lopez started the tournament in 1993 and Dr. Stephen wells proudly continues the tradition.  Since that time more than 350 students, mostly fifth-year seniors, have received tuition assistance from the President’s Tuition Assistance Fund.  This year’s golf tournament ensures this important source of scholarship funding continues at NMT.

Note: In addition to helping students complete their education, proceeds from the President's Golf Tournament are used to steward donors and support fundraising.
