Corky Meinecke Golf Outing
The annual Corky Meinecke Golf Outing was held on Friday, July 12 at the Meadows golf course at Grand Valley State University. Fifty two golfers attended the outing to help raise just over $2,000 for the Corky Meinecke Scholarship Fund which financially supports students who are seeking a degree in the broadcasting industry. The winning team was Gwasdacus, Werkmeister, Hamlin and Grover.
The Corky Meinecke Memorial Scholarship honors the memory of Corky Meinecke, a 1977 GVSU graduate and sportswriter whose pen graced the pages of the Grand Rapids Press, Bay City Times, Detroit News and Detroit Free Press before he died in 1997 of cancer. As a Grand Valley student, Corky wrote for the Lanthorn and worked at the Grand Valley State Sports Information Department. This scholarship is intended to benefit students with an interest in a career in sports, be it in radio, television or print media, or in media relations.
