2019 Moses Clements VT Scholarship Golf Tournament

2018 Moses Clements Scholorship Recipients

Over the last 20+ years the Emporia/Roanoke Rapids Hokie Club and Alumni Chapter (ERRHC) has supported freshmen entering Virginia Tech with scholarships exceeding $40,000.  These donations have been funded by hole sponsors and teams entering the annual golf tournament as this is the one fund raiser annually.

The tournament is named for Moses Clements, our beloved Hokie who passed away way too early.  The Scholarship Program and the Scholarship Tournament both bear his name – the Moses Clements Scholarship Program and the 2019 Moses Clements VT Scholarship Golf Tournament, in remembrance of his dedicated service to the club and especially the Scholarship Program.  It was his annual joy to review and present the scholarships at the summer dinner.

This year the tournament will be held on Friday May 31st at the Emporia Country Club at noon.  The event will start with a Subway lunch and open driving range.  There will be a shotgun start at 1:00 PM.  The cost to play is $60 per player which includes golf, golf cart, green fees, goody bag, beverages, 2 mulligans, box lunch and hors d’oeuvres after the event at the awards ceremony.

The Emporia Country Club is located at 578 Country Club Road, Emporia.

Hole sponsorships are $100 and should be reserved in the next 10 days as the new signs will need to be produced and placed on the holes.

To enter the tournament or to be a hole or meal sponsor, please contact Barry Grizzard at barry.grizzard@littleoilco.com or 804.929.3146 or any Emporia Hokie Club Board Member – Kevin Swenson, Wilson Clary, Meade Horne, Mike Roach, Jeff Robinson, Hall Squire, Roly Weaver, Katie Richardson or Matthew Lynch.
