The Powell Watson Motor Auto Group hosted a press conference to announce their 5th consecutive lead sponsorship for the United ISD Golf For Scholars Tournament. During the press conference, owners Jonathan Watson and Michael Powell presented a check in the amount of $15,000 to get this year’s fundraising effort underway. The company will also provide golfers with two hole-in-one opportunities to win a new automobile.
This year's golf fundraiser will be held on Saturday, October 12, 2019, at the Max A. Mandel Municipal Golf Course located at 27700 Mines Road (FM1472). Tee-off time is at 8:30 a.m. The event, coordinated through the United ISD Athletics Department, is a three-man scramble (adult), tournament. Final results will be announced at the conclusion of the event. First, second, and third-place trophies will be awarded to the top teams. Breakfast, lunch, snacks and door prizes will be furnished by additional tournament sponsors. All proceeds from the event will be utilized to provide scholarships for college-bound students from all four United ISD high schools.
“ On behalf of the United ISD Board of Trustees, I wish to thank Powell Watson for advocating for our students. Their contributions over the years have eased financial challenges for hundreds of students who aspire to begin their college studies upon graduation from high school. We're also grateful that they support the efforts of our educators who work diligently with students and their parents," said United ISD Superintendent Roberto J. Santos. For co-sponsorship reservations, team sign-ups and general information, please call Mr. Bobby Cruz, United ISD Athletics Director, at 473-7100. Special thanks to the Lyndon B. Johnson High School Cheerleaders, Dreamcatcher officers, drum-line, mascot and student council officers for lending their talents and assistance to the press conference.
