In September, the chapter hosted its Annual Scholarship Fundraiser Golf Scramble Tournament. This tournament raises funds for Lift Off Scholarships for local outstanding high school seniors who have been accepted to pursue STEM studies in college. This event was hosted at the scenic Lincoln Trail Golf Course in Vine Grove, Kentucky.
The chapter would like to express its deep, heartfelt thanks to all of the sponsors, participants and volunteers who came out to support this important community event. Platinum Level Sponsors were: Perspecta, CoreSys, NTT Data Services and Deloitte. The Platinum Level Lunch Sponsor was Exeter. The Gold Level Sponsor was TEKSystems and the Silver Level Sponsor was Segue Technologies. The primary organizer of this event was Derek Massey, vice president of programs. The chapter's executive committee and volunteers worked hard to prepare for the event, ensuring that registration ran smoothly and all players received gift bags along with an opportunity to win prizes donated by local area businesses. Executive committee members who supported this event were Karen Barry, chapter secretary; Michael Tague, chapter treasurer; Gina Dowell, chapter vice president of Women in AFCEA; Jessica Johnson, chapter vice president of membership; and Angela Alexander-Mendoza, chapter president. Event volunteers were Undreed Buissereth, information technology specialist, GS, Systems Management Branch, and his daughter.
The first place winners of the Golf Scramble were Deloitte Team 10: Glen Grubbs, Greg Cunningham, Bill Schlett and Mose. Congratulations to the Deloitte team!
David Hart, regional vice president, Midwest, and vice president of Segue Technologies, traveled from the Dayton-Wright Chapter to support this event and brought with him special guests and combat veterans: Spc. John Looker, USA (Ret.), recipient of three Purple Hearts, Vietnam, and Maj. Alex Ross, U.S. Army Ranger, Purple Heart, 101st Airborne.
