The College welcomed 146 golfers to its 7th Annual Benefit Golf Outing on June 9 on the Thornberry Creek at Oneida course. Low scores, game wins and lucky raffle tickets resulted in dozens of winners among players and banquet guests. Again this year, the biggest winners were CMN students who will receive scholarships and other aid funded through event proceeds.

 

Net profit from the 2017 outing was $25,338 and brings the golf outing's cumulative profit to more than $141,000 since the inaugural event.

 

Outing organizers send thanks to the generous sponsors and donors, hard working volunteers, and enthusiastic golfers, many of whom have participated every year since the first event in 2011. The outing returns to Thornberry on June 8, 2018. Plan to be there!

 

Surprise award added to evening's celebrations

 

Golfers and guests gave a round of applause when Ernie Stevens, Jr. stepped to the microphone to give the National Indian Gaming Association Chairman's Leadership Award to CMN's recently-retired founding President, Dr. Verna Fowler. The surprise presentation included a plaque and Native-patterned blanket for Dr. Fowler, who was praised by Stevens for her long and successful service on behalf of American Indian higher education.
