OABA Educational Trust Golf for Scholarships Outing Recap

The Ohio AgriBusiness Association Educational Trust held its Golf for Scholarships scramble on Aug. 21. Nearly 115 golfers came together at the Shelby Oaks Golf Club in Sidney to support the OABA Educational Trust scholarship fund.

The Educational Trust fund supports scholarships for Ohio agricultural students at The Ohio State University and Ohio State ATI, Central State University, Clark State Community College and Wilmington College. More than $45,000 is awarded in scholarships each year due to events like the Golf for Scholarships scramble.

Thank you to those who came out to golf, to our generous event sponsors, plus our lunch, contest and hole sponsors, and to our committee members for all your continued hard work. Click here to see pictures from the outing and if you haven't already, be sure to 'like' the OABA Facebook page.
