Approximately 144 golfers participated in the event held at the Deercreek Golf and Country Club. Over 60 area companies were represented.
“Proceeds from the fundraiser will go toward paying for engineering scholarships each year, in addition to building our college endowment program,” said Lake Ray, FCMA president.
“Education, particularly, the science, math, chemistry and engineering fields, is critical to our community’s workforce,” Ray explained. “We must have an educated talent pool available for manufacturers or any high tech companies doing business in Jacksonville. By offering scholarships and tying them to the outstanding engineering program at UNF, we hope to be able to help supply qualified employees to area businesses.”
