MCC students will benefit from new scholarships and learning opportunities thanks to the 108 golfers who participated in the Monroe Community College Foundation’s 26th annual Scholarship Open on July 12 at Monroe Golf Club.

Nineteen new scholarships, named for corporate and individual donors, were established at the event. In addition, 10 scholarships were made possible by underwriting commitments made prior to the tournament.
