A Grant High School student, Andrew Brenner, has received a golf-related scholarship that will pay for full tuition and housing at the University of Oregon over the next four years.
He is one of ten Oregon students, and the second from a Northeast Portland school, to receive an Evans Scholarship in a program supported by the Western Golf Association. Ngoc Le of Madison High was named a scholarship recipient earlier this year.
Evans Scholars are chosen for excellent academics, outstanding leadership and character, financial need and a strong caddie record. Brenner was sponsored by Riverside Golf & Country Club.
Most funds for the scholarship program, established in 1930, come from 28,700 golfers who are members of the Western Golf Association Par Club program. Evans Scholars alumni and golf events also support the scholarship. Additional information is at www.wgaesf.org.
