With more than double the amount of scholarship-athletes this year (410) than last (200), Reinhardt intercollegiate athletics has more scholarship offerings and demands than ever. Created in 2010 to support the athletics program, the 3rd annual Athletic Golf Tournament, played at Callahan’s Golf Links in Waleska, Ga., on October 15, 2012, was a huge success. All funds raised from this event will go to support Reinhardt’s sports programs and student-athletes.

Making a difference!

“Intercollegiate athletics play a vital role in life at Reinhardt,” said Dr. J. Thomas Isherwood, president. “Our third event was a success, and we look forward to the tournament growing every year. It’s a great way for those who love athletics to get involved and make a real difference!”

Benefiting our student-athletes.

Reinhardt’s Director of Annual Giving and Church Relations Barbara Manous added to Isherwood’s sentiments. “Under the leadership of Dan Carmichael and the dedication of the Reinhardt coaches and other committee members, the tournament surpassed all expectations by having more donations than last year. Proceeds from this event go toward the athletic program at Reinhardt University and benefit our student-athletes. Everyone involved worked very hard to make sure this tournament was enjoyed by all participants.”
