Educational Foundation, Inc.
Annual Corporate Golf Classic
Since 1991, the New Horizons Educational Foundation, Inc. has sponsored its Annual Corporate Golf Challenge to promote New Horizons Regional Education Center to the community and as a fundraiser for student scholarships. The Foundation Board consists of twenty (20) corporate directors united to benefit NHREC students being served from all six Peninsula school divisions. Since 1992, the New Horizons Educational Foundation Golf Classic has raised over $390,000 growing from $2,000 to $39,000 annually. The scholarship program has awarded over 60 scholarship and thousands of dollars to assist with program incentives. The Golf Classic has successfully created community awareness and partnerships, while promoting New Horizons Regional Education Center.
The Foundation scholarships are awarded to Career and Technical Education and Governor’s School for Science and Technology students to pursue academic and career goals through a collegiate, technical school, or apprenticeship program experience. The Foundation also provides funding to the Center for Autism and Newport Academy for the purchase of incentive awards as part of their instructional program.
Each year the Foundation Board designates its proceeds for scholarships and instructional incentives. In 2007, the Foundation Board determined a scholarship fund ratio of 25% for the Governor’s School for Science and Technology based upon academic excellence and leadership within the program, and 75% to Career and Technical Education based upon achievement and financial need.
The annual tournament is held at Ford’s Colony Country Club averaging 25 corporate teams that spend the day networking and developing new partnerships while benefiting New Horizons students. The day is capped with an awards banquet and participants raising additional money by means of an auction and raffle. If you wish to be a part of this event, please contact the Executive Director of New Horizons at 757-766-0000 or any Foundation member.
