PGA Grants Scholarships

May 15, 2009

The PGA of America’s Financial Assistance Fund Scholarship was awarded to five Indiana applicants who are children of Indiana PGA Professionals and pursuing a college education. Erin Smith of Peru, Thomas Harner of French Lick, Jennifer Hunt of Portland and Julianne Frye were all named National Award Winners and received $2,000 towards their education. Brad Smith of Peru was named a John Cox Award Winner and received $5,000. Cox was a former PGA independent director from Midland, Texas, who generously donated $1.2 million from 1997-98 to the PGA Financial Assistance Fund, resulting in a scholarship endowment.

Erin and Brad Smith are the children of PGA Professional Todd Smith of Rock Hollow G.C., and Erin will attend Indiana University in the fall. Brad is currently a student athlete at Ohio State University. Harner, son of French Lick Resort PGA Professional Dave Harner, and Hunt, daughter of PGA Professional Randy Hunt at Ki-Ann G.C., will also attend Indiana University. Frye, daughter of PGA Profesional Rick Frye, is already a student at University of Kentucky.
