In the midst of this very unusual year our scholarship committee has continued its work and selected the winners of our $1,000 scholarships for students at all of the high schools in the Goose Creek Consolidated Independent School District.
We want to thank all of the outstanding students who applied for our scholarships. We wish we could award you all.
The students we selected reminded us of Mike Clement in some way, so that set them apart.
Because of the passing of Mike’s mother, Niwassa Clement, in April 2020, we were blessed with additional funds contributed to our organization in her memory. This enabled us to award an additional $1,000 scholarship in her honor. This is very appropriate because Niwassa was a great supporter of our effort to bless GCCISD students in Mike’s name.
If you would like to contribute to our Niwassa fund, you can do so here. We will be sure the family is aware of your thoughtfulness.
Total Awarded for 2020
Also, this year we decided to award not just one scholarship at IMPACT Early College High School and Peter Hyland Center, but as with the other three high schools to award both a male and female student from each of those schools.
So for 2020 we are awarding eleven outstanding students with $1,000 scholarships.
Total Awarded Since 2017
Since our first scholarship awards in 2017, FOMC has now awarded $34,500 in scholarships. For a complete list of all our winners, please click here.
This would not be possible without all of you who have contributed to our efforts. This includes golfers, hole sponsors, contest sponsors, silent auction donors, silent auction bidders, general donors, and volunteers. This is all because of you, and we are grateful! A list of all of our donors since we started FOMC can be found here.
Here are our winners for 2020. Congratulations, and best wishes to all of you:

2020 Golf Tournament – 10/17/20
The COVID-19 restrictions have caused us to cancel the bowling tournament that we had planned to hold in conjunction with the combined RSS/REL Class of 1980 reunion in April 2020. However, the new date for that reunion is October 17, 2020. Our 6th Annual golf tournament is that Saturday morning. You can find details here.
I am absolutely confident that this year’s golf tournament will be our best yet. For that to happen, however, we need your support. Please put a team together, sponsor a hole, sponsor a contest, donate an item to the silent auction, or bid on a silent auction item. Better yet, do all of these. We believe we are building something special here, and we need you to be a part of it.
Let’s make this event our biggest and best yet so that we can help even more students in 2021 and beyond.
