2013 Caddieshack Tournament
Jose Morales Caddie Scholarship Announcement
(July 24, 2013) Last night the Directors of the Jose Morales Memorial Caddie Scholarship Committee announced awards totaling a record $47,000 in scholarships to twenty caddies that submitted applications for the coming school year. We are also proud to announce an award to our first female caddy, Rebecca Falkiner. Since 2002, our members have contributed over $312,000 and we have awarded 85 scholarships with a value of $306,200.
This year we have eight repeat scholarship winners; Dan Porras (Michigan State), Nathan Brune (University of Illinois), Jon Henricks (University of Illinois), David Krueger (CLC), Matt Micucci (Northwestern), Chris Radecki (University of Illinois), Brad Shulkin (University of Missouri), Michael Taylor (University of Illinois).
First time scholarships are awarded to caddies; Sean Chechang (Iowa), Javier Dominguez (UIC), Rebecca Falkiner (Illinois State), Rosario Garcia (Harper), Justin Guthrie (Bradley), Grant Heela (Tampa), Joe Kallenbach (Western Illinois), Nick Olson (DePaul), Jeff Rangell (Arizona), Tommy Schofield, (Wisconsin), Zachary Sheck (Indiana) and Dan Wojcikowski (Dayton).
Congratulations to all our 2013 scholarship winners!
These awards are direct deposited to each of their schools and will have a notable impact on their ability to pay for their college education. The scholarships are awarded using the following criteria: a completed application, financial need, years of service to RMCC, number of loops in season, academics, and caddie performance.
On behalf of the Scholarship committee, I would like to thank each and every one of our members for your continued generosity and support of this very special program. You are making a difference to help educate these young men and women who devote so much of their time to our members and our club each summer.
Also, please come out and join us this Thursday for our 9th Annual Caddie Shack Tournament. If you cannot fit it in your schedule to play golf, phone the pro shop and sponsor a hole to help support our scholarship program.
Larry Malone, Chair
