Chamber golf tourney to honor Schildkamp
MIDDLEBURY — The Addison County Chamber of Commerce will host its 20th annual Scholarship Golf Tournament on Friday, June 27, at Middlebury College’s Ralph Myhre Golf Course. Participants will enjoy 18 holes of golf and an awards barbecue during which the 2014 scholarship recipient, Matthew Schildkamp, will be recognized.
The tournament features the chance to win a new Jeep Grand Cherokee for a hole-in-one, and one person will putt for $2,500.
Schildkamp will be attending the University of Maine this fall and plans on majoring in environmental studies. According to Marie Eddy, Hannaford Career Center Scholarship chair, “Matt is an amazing student who is a member of both our National Technical Honor Society and National Arts Honor Society. He has been on the honor roll at his home school (Middlebury Union High School) and has been Outstanding Student of the Quarter here at the Career Center. Matt has spent more than 200 hours with the Middlebury Police Explorers, and spent a year teaching sixth-grade Sunday school at St. Mary’s Church.”
“The Addison County Chamber of Commerce scholarship is very much appreciated. It is a huge help to deserving students who have finished a program at the Hannaford Career Center to get started on their future,” said Lynn Coale, director of the Hannaford Career Center. “The Chamber supports the business community a great deal and we are grateful that they support the future work force as well.”
J.P. Carrara & Sons returns again as the event’s major sponsor along with Bread Loaf Corp. Sponsorships and participation in the tournament make it possible to fund $4,000 each year in scholarships to graduates of the Hannaford Career Center.
