“Support a Scholar” Golf Fundraiser

For many students, the ability to pursue their dream of attending college is a daunting and costly process. With the goal of making the cost less of a factor, the Executive Board of SAANYS Region 6 has been awarding scholarships to hard-working seniors in the greater Capital Region for many years now. For the past 4 years, our Support-a-Scholar charity golf tournament has increased the number of available scholarships, hence increasing the number of students who are able to receive them. Each year, many educators and sponsors participate in making these scholarships a reality.
