Columbia State Community College hosted the Rogers Group Inc. 19th Annual J.R. Moon Golf Classic this month at the Saddle Creek Golf Club in Lewisburg.

"It is such a pleasure to be a part of this community-wide effort. Golfers,committee members, donors and volunteers make this the successful event it is every year," said Elizabeth McDow, director of the Lewisburg campus.

"Because of the herculean efforts of our community partners, residents of Marshall County are eligible to receive much needed financial help with their tuition and/or books."

More than 75 sponsors and donors showed their support. The proceeds from the tournament benefit Marshall County students through scholarships and support of the Columbia State Lewisburg Campus.

Since its inception, proceeds from the tournament have provided scholarships to more than 165 students attending the Lewisburg campus.
