This year’s classic will be the 11th Golf Classic that Coppin has held in its 113 year history. Increasing in popularity, the Classic now attracts golfers of all levels who support this event that mixes business with pleasure.
Funds raised from the Golf Classic will support the Coppin State University Senior Opportunity Scholarship (SOS) Program. SOS provides Coppin seniors who are on the cusp of graduation, but are in need of additional financial resources to enable them to earn their diploma, attend graduate school, or launch their careers. These efforts are critical for improving graduation rates at Coppin State University where a high percent of our students have financial challenges.
This year, we have a number of students who have enough academic credits to graduate but may not due to the lack of financial resources. Therefore, our goal for 2013 is to raise $45,000 to support the SOS program.
