Alumni groups join for a golf tourney

LAKE ROYALE -- Two historically black high school alumni associations joined forces for a golf tourney with proceeds going to academic scholarships.

Members of the Perry's High School and the Franklin County Training School/Riverside Union High School alumni associations came together for the golf tourney back in June.

The event, at The River Golf and Country Club, drew more than 40 players from the area, including players Charlotte, Raleigh, Rocky Mount and Virginia Beach, Va.

There were prizes for the golfer who traveled the longest distance to compete, and golfers who had lucky tickets.

First place went to the Franklin County Sheriff's Office team, made up of Deney Buchanan, Randy Dropko, Jimmy Turner and Jeff Knapp.

Second place went to the Sullivan team from Rocky Mount and third place was awarded to the team represented by an alumnus of FCTS/Riverside.

Proceeds will be used by both alumni organizations to award academic scholarships to local high school students.

Perry's alumni are in the process of renovating their gym to be used as a community center and their share will help toward that, also.

In addition the scholarship funding, FCTS/Riverside alumni will help sponsor a member of the Boys and Girls Club for a summer camp and adopt a family during the holidays through the Franklin County Department of Social Services' Christmas program.

Evelyn Blackwell and Armenta Eaton helped coordinate the fundraising event.
