The Southwest Virginia Community College Educational Foundation hosted the 31st Annual Scholarship Golf Classic on Thursday, September 28, 2023, at the Tazewell County Country Club. Thanks to generous sponsors and players, over $20,000 was raised this year to support students at the college. 

The long-standing tradition benefits students at the college by helping them offset tuition fees and essential costs like books and class materials. The tournament this year was played in honor of Ginger Robertson. Ginger was a charter member of the committee that initiated the Golf Classic three decades ago. She has also advocated and supported Southwest for decades as well, establishing the Ginger P. Robertson Scholarship in 2017.
