Scramble for Students
It was a wet one, but those who endured the torrential rain, hail, thunder and lightening had a great time golfing at Persimmon County Club on September 18. For the first time in our 22 year history, the tournament sold out with 144 golfers and a record number of sponsors. Over $61,000 was raised to support the work of the education foundation and the students in our district.

Funds raised through the golf tournament benefit every school in the Gresham-Barlow School District. Since its beginning in 1994, the GBEF has given the district over $2 million through classroom Innovation Grant awards and literacy support. These programs enable teachers to offer innovative classroom projects and enhancements beyond what tax dollars can provide.
When our 2018 date is secure, we will post additional details.
