Georgia Tech College of Management's second annual MBA Golf
Classic brought together students and alumni who competed April 23 at East Lake
Sponsored by Southern Company, the student-organized event
was designed to team business leaders with Full-time and Evening MBA students
interested in similar professional fields.
Twenty-five students and 12 alumni participated,
with proceeds from registration fees benefiting projects of the MBA
Philanthropy Club, including sending students to New Orleans to rebuild homes.
Members of the winning team, with a score of 63, were MBA
students Brandon Miller, Tom Ausman, and Michael Connell as well as alumnus Willy Hoos (MSM 2000).
Bethany Davis (MBA 2011), who helped organize the event,
says, "The Golf Classic provides an opportunity for our current and future
students to interact in a unique setting. Students who participate say that of
all the days of the MBA program, this is one of the most memorable."
The MBA Golf Classic included lunch and a cocktail
reception. Chad Parker, East Lake Golf Club's head golf professional, spoke
about the history of connections between Georgia Tech and his club. Buzz also
made a special appearance.
