A little mist and lots of clouds did not deter the great sense of community and the enjoyment of golfing at Windyke Country Club at the fourth annual Steve Collums Classic (SCC). On September 30, ECS once again held the tournament in honor of former headmaster, Steve Collums. Coach Collums left behind a great legacy of servant-hood, a love for teaching and coaching, and a desire to integrate Christian worldview into all aspects of education. This golf tournament is a way to remember Coach Collums’ incredible influence on the ECS community. The SCC continues to be a blessing to the Collums family and to all those who participate. The tournament raises money for tuition assistance at ECS, a program that was highly valued by Coach Collums and his family.
ECS alums, PJ Tashie (‘02) and Blake Dickens (’98), have served as the Committee Chairmen of the Steve Collums Classic since its inauguration. They receive help from Cindy (Logan) Garrison (’88), the Collums family, and the Advancement staff. Current and former ECS teachers, Alan Durham, John Roelofs, Terry Tippett, Mark Brink, and Mickey Bowdon, were there to welcome back the many ECS alumni who participated in the tournament. Over 140 golfers participated in the 2013 SCC.
Other volunteers, Stefanie Albright, Connie Shackelford, Amee & Richard Cooper, Kelley J. Cunningham, Drace Tashie Tigert, and Tracey Bravos, contributed invaluable assistance to the success of this exciting event.
