Twenty-six teams gathered at Sugar Isle Golf Course on Sunday, September 10, to tee off for the Tecumseh Education Foundation. The foundation, commonly known as TEF, is a non-profit organization that raises money for college scholarships for Tecumseh Local seniors and also funds grants to teachers for classroom initiatives that go beyond the normal school budget. The golf outing was organized by TEF’s dedicated board of eleven community volunteers working along with Assistant Superintendent, Paula Crew, and Tecumseh Local School Board liaison, Kurt Lewis.
While organizers were hoping for sixteen teams and eighteen hole sponsors, the Tecumseh community came through with massive support raising a net profit of $3,500. TEF President Kevin Harmon said, “I love this school district and community! We ended up with thirty-seven hole and drive sponsors, twelve businesses donating raffle prizes plus the twenty-six golf teams! A lot of hard work was put in by the Tecumseh Education Foundation board members and countless volunteers! We want to thank all of the donors from New Carlisle, Medway, and Tipp City area plus a special thank you to Sugar Isle Golf Course. With all of the positive feedback from the golfers and volunteers, TEF plans to repeat this event next September.”
