As we all know, this year was challenging in many ways. There were days when we questioned whether it was a good idea to proceed with an in-person golf tournament. We are grateful that we pressed on! Our sponsors and players demonstrated unwavering commitment to increasing the Capstone Engineering Society Endowed Scholarship Fund. Through this year’s tournament and silent auction we were able to add an astonishing $41,190 to the endowment. The College of Engineering simply could not have done it without the generosity of our sponsors and patrons. Thank you all, and Roll Tide!
