WCCC Golf Tournament Raises $10,000 in Scholarships!

Congratulations to the 2018 WCCC golf champions, which include Josh Thornton, Brian McArthur, John Marchese and Mike Horne. The team shot a strong 16-under-par 54 for the victory.

Every year, golfers from across Washington and Charlotte Counties gather to take part in Washington County Community College’s golf tournament, held at the St. Croix County Club in Calais. This year’s event, held on sunny Saturday, July 14th, was attended by 116 golfers, each of whom was eligible to win a new vehicle thanks to the sponsorship of Pratt dealership in Calais. None of the golfers were lucky enough to hit a hole in one this year, leaving the vehicle unclaimed – until next year’s competition.

This year’s tournament and scholarship campaign generated $10,500 in scholarships. WCCC would like to give special thanks to everyone that made a scholarship donation so far this year: Andel Construction Services, Anne Perry, Bell’s IGA, Calais Ace Homecenter, Calais Dunkin Donuts, Calais Motor Inn, Dr. Bill & Sue Cassidy, Joseph Cassidy, Dead River Company, Down East Credit Union in memory of long time Board of Directors member Jeff Gagner, Eastern Maine Electric Cooperative, EBS Building Supplies, Farrell Family, International Motel, Dr. Joyce & Wes Hedlund, Ken & Jane Brooks, May’s Funeral Home, PCT Communications, Quoddy Pilots USA, Richard Mingo Construction, Riverside Electric, Roger’s Auto Sales, St. Croix Country Club, Sunrise Eye Care, WCCC Student Senate, Tammi Smith Tax & Accounting, and WQDY.


The full event had many of the top area golfers participating in the student fundraiser. A strong 16-under-par was earned in the 18-hole event by the team of John Marchese, Brian McArthur, Mike Horne, and Josh Thornton as they combined in the scramble posting a 54. Darin Hill, Pat Ellis, Sam Bell, and Bobby Davis carded a fine 55.
