KY Leaders of Tomorrow® Inaugural Golf Tournament

As a result of generous sponsors and donors, 3 Kentucky Leaders of Tomorrow® students were able to attend the 2015 Leaders of Tomorrow® Case Competition in Houston, Texas last month. These 3 students had the experience of a lifetime, and we look forward to continuing the program for the 2015-2016 school year.

With this in mind, the chapter is hosting the KY Leaders of Tomorrow® Inaugural Golf Tournament to be held on Friday, August 21st at Shawnee Golf Course. Lunch will begin at 12:30pm with a 1:30pm tee time. A four person team is $400 and all proceeds will be used to fund future Kentucky Leaders of Tomorrow® expenses and scholarships.
