On Thursday June 5th, blue skies and warm weather welcomed a full course of more than 75 golfers to the Densons Creek Golf Course as the Appalachian State University Local Government Alumni Association hosted its 7th Annual Maness Local Government Endowment Golf Tournament.
Organized by the Town of Troy, the tournament proceeds benefit an endowment for Appalachian State University’s Masters of Public Administration, Town Administration, City, and County Management Program. This program is one of the most recognized in the State, and is designed to train students to manage public agencies and programs, with graduates of the program occupying a wide variety of jobs throughout North Carolina, the United States, and abroad.
The Tournament was kicked off by its namesake, Town of Troy Mayor Roy Maness, whose support of the program earned him the honorary title from the Appalachian State Alumni who started the endowment. After a great round, the afternoon ended with great food and a putting contest where 10 putters competed for cash prizes ranging from $75 to $750.
The Wooten Company is proud to support the efforts of the ASU Local Government Alumni Association and was happy to sponsor the tournament. Asheboro Branch Manager John Grey and the Town of Robbins’ Manager and Police Chief, Jeff Sheffield carried The Wooten Company team to a respectable mid-pack finish in the competitive round.
We look forward to next year’s tournament and want to thank the Town of Troy and the Appalachian State University Local Government Alumni Association for organizing such a great tournament on behalf of such a great cause.
