August 6, 2012

The Seacoast United Foundation recognized the 2012 Jarkko Tuominen Scholars on Monday at the annual golf tournament held in his name. The event took place at The Ledges Golf Club in York, ME and hosted 70+ golfers.

Pictured are 5 of the 8 scholars who were able to attend the dinner: (from L to R) Tristan Cooper, Syver Klefos, Connor Brown, Michael Field, and Jillian Richard.  Paige Rachel, Kirsten O'Neil and Austin Alphonse have already reported to their respective colleges for the beginning of preseason training.
 
Also pictured are Nike employees who had travelled to Maine from as far away as Oregon, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Holland for the event.  In the 7 years of its existence, the Jarkko Tuominen College Scholarship has been awarded to over 100 athletes.  
 
The Seacoast United Foundation would like to thank all of the golfers along with all of the sponsors and friends of the club who helped to make this such a successful day on the course.
