Superintendent Irma Trosclair would like to give special thanks to the community members who support this scholarship program. The scholarships given to these students would not be possible without the sponsors that help fund The Superintendent’s Golf Tournament as well as the scholarship itself. The superintendent would also like to thank the Superintendent’s Scholarship Committee for their role in selecting these students. 

The Superintendent’s Golf Tournament will be held on Friday, May 27, 2022  at Farm d’Allie Golf Club. Players as well as sponsors are needed to continue to fund this scholarship initiative.
