KEMP–The Kemp Band Boosters golf tournament raised enough money April 9 to fund several $500 scholarships for college-bound seniors.
“It was very successful,” tournament spokesman John Taylor said. “We had beautiful weather and everybody had a great time.”

The top finishing team in the four-man scramble tournament won a trophy.
After a three-way tie, the team of Kurt Schumacker, Shane Carlisle and Mr. Zigler won the tournament with a score of 59.
The team of Randy McSpedden, Richard Burkhart, Rodney Dearing and Monty McSpedden; as well as the team of David Cotton, Greg Merritt, Charles Prestige and Edgar Cotton; also finished with 59.
Aaron Goswick won the longest drive off the pot – the pot shot – competition.
Winning the “Coveted DAL” award was the team of Jimmie Polk, Melinda Polk, Mark Christy and Marshall Hensley. They won the honor with a score of 82.
There were four Closest-to-the-Pin winners. Dillon Chambers won on hole No. 5, Cory Dowdy won on hole No. 8, Randy McSpedded won on hole No. 14 and Shane Carlisle took the award on hole No. 17.
“We had lots of great sponsor support for the tournament,” Taylor said.
The tournament is an annual event to raise money to provide graduating high school seniors a scholarship to help with college costs.
College-bound students can use the scholarship for any college or university they choose to attend.
