On October 16, 2021 we held our seventh annual golf tournament and silent auction. Many thanks to all of those who helped us: golfers, donors, and volunteers. Without you it would not have been possible.
We cleared over $11,700 from this event. This amount fully funds our ability to award scholarships in the Spring of 2022 to deserving GCCISD seniors.
The following wrap-up appeared in The Baytown Sun on 10/26/21:

The seventh annual Mike Clement Golf Tournament was held at Eagle Pointe Golf Course on Oct 16.
Rick Perras, Lori Marti, Brent Mauer and Eric Mauer were members of the winning team. They finished with a total team score of 58.
Lori Marti (Hole #1) and Patty Watson (Hole #10) were the long drive champs, while Eric Mauer (Hole #8) and Lori Marti (Hole #15) were the closest to the pin winners.
Mike Clement was a Baytown native who graduated from Robert E. Lee High School in 1980. Sometime during his time at Sam Houston State, Mike was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
In his 1987 book “Rise to the Challenge,” Clement describes hitting rock bottom physically and emotionally. At that point he prayed and determined not to wallow in self-pity. He threw his energy into his ministry and eventually was elected to the Goose Creek CISD school board.
“Friends of Mike Clement” hosts the golf event each fall and honors Mike’s memory by awarding scholarships to Goose Creek CISD students every May before graduation.
The “Friends of Mike Clement” organization plans to award another $10,000 in scholarships in May of 2022 to deserving GCCISD senior students.
