19th Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament
In Memory of Chris Gruber.
Colbert Hills Golf Course
Monday, June 3rd, 2013
More than $85,000 has been raised during the past 16 years for scholarship assistance for veterinary students through the College of Veterinary Medicine Scholarship Golf Tournament.
A third year student wrote, “Your commitment to helping promising students achieve their goals is wonderful. Rest assured the scholarship is being put to good use.” Another student wrote, “I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing me to be one of this year’s recipients of the Golf Tournament Scholarship. The scholarship will be used to lessen my financial burden, and for that, I am truly grateful.” Your support obviously makes a difference.
This year’s golf tournament is being held in memory of Chris Gruber, the former director of development for the CVM who organized and played in the golf tournament for the last eight years. News about Chris’ passing was posted in the April issue of Lifelines and a memorial fund has been established at www.found.k-state.edu/memorials/gruber.
