TPSF Golf Tournament A Success

The TPS Foundation hosted the 19th annual Winfred Tidwell Memorial golf tournament at Firekeepers golf course. Pamela Johnson Betts, TPSF executive director, said " The tournament was another success as more individuals played and the number of sponsors supporting the event remain constant" She noted that for the first time in many years TPS had a superintendent that played golf and who was front and center at the tournament. 
Feedback from the Foundation tournament evaluations and community participation support continuation of this event. Look for it's return and get the date May 30, 2013 on your calendars.
24 teams participated this year, the tournament profit will be used to support funding of the Foundation innovative teacher education grants to be distributed in the fall.
If staff have not applied for a 2012-2013 Foundation education grant you are encouraged to do so. The education grant application can be found on the TPSF website and must be submitted to the Foundation office (Burnett Pod A) by September 21st.
