21st Annual LPSS Superintendent’s Scholarship Golf Tournament

The 21st annual LPSS Superintendent’s Scholarship Golf Tournament was held at the Farm d’Allie Golf Club in Carencro on April 9, 2018. The tournament raised over $48,000. Proceeds from the tournament fund scholarships for graduating seniors from Lafayette Parish public schools. The scholarship helps to defray the cost of post-secondary education for the first two semesters for graduates who show academic potential, a desire to succeed, and who have financial need.  Since 1997, the tournament has raised over $460,000 for Lafayette Parish public school students.  This year, four sponsors termed “Presenting Sponsors” gave $3,000 or more: Coca Cola, Sound & Communication Systems, Inc.; Ross Bus & Equipment Sales; and The Grad Shoppe. Over 110 golfers participated in the tournament.

Coaches and administrators from the high schools competed in the morning. Acadiana High placed 1st followed closely by Comeaux High in 2nd place. In the afternoon competition, ADG Engineering placed 1st followed by Sound & Communication Systems, Inc. in 2nd.  Chief Academic Officer Annette Samec said, “The tournament was a great success, and the plan for next year is to continue to raise funds for student scholarships and have a great time doing it.”
