The Western Golf Association has awarded Megan Fairchild of St. Joseph High School an Evans Scholarship to Michigan State University. Megan is an Honor Caddy at Point O’ Woods Golf & Country Club here in Benton Harbor.
Currently, a record 1,010 caddies are enrolled in 18 universities across the nation as Evans Scholars, and more than 11,050 caddies have graduated as Evans Scholars since the program was founded by famed Chicago amateur golfer Charles “Chick” Evans Jr. in 1930.
“Megan Fairchild along with each of these deserving Evans Scholars epitomizes what our Program has been about since its creation in 1930,” said WGA Chairman Kevin Buggy. “Their dedication, hard work and sacrifice is humbling, and we are honored to be able to help them pursue their dreams.”
