Nick Bledsoe was a senior at Okawville High School who died while working his after-school job on March 3, 2011. In honor of his memory, his parents and sister established an educational fund in his memory which awards an annual scholarship to one OHS senior, and makes additional contributions to school organizations as well.
The annual Nick Bledsoe Memorial Scholarship Golf Scramble helps to raise funds for this scholarship and the other donations.
The event will be held this year on Saturday, July 21, at the Roland Barkau Memorial Golf Course in Okawville. Tee-off is at 1 p.m.
The cost for the scramble is $80 per player, or $320 per team.
