204 golfers came out to support the students of WCC by playing golf. (The most golfers ever at this event!) Thanks to the players, the sponsors, and those that purchased items from the silent auction, the Jerry Jernigan Memorial Golf Outing raised just shy of $100,000. Thank you!

From a student who was told by her family that there is no need for women to get an education to the daughter of one of our country's most famous scientists, the message from the WCC stage was clear: women can achieve their dreams. Though there may be struggles, women who achieve much have one thing in common: people who helped and believed in them along the way. The spirit of community and support is always palpable at the annual WCC Women's Council luncheon. This years honorees contributed to it in no small way: Phyllis Meadows, Ann Meredith and Laurita Thomas. Thanks to all who made the lunch so special and successful in raising support for students in need at WCC.
