2020 was a tumultuous year for the world and for our fundraising. We had to cancel our annual golf tournament and instead we raised funds with our Mike's Challenge 2020 campaign. Through the generosity of our wonderful donors we were able to meet our goal for the year and were able to award eleven $1, 000 scholarships.
Our scholarship committee has continued its work and selected the winners of our scholarships for students from every high school 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.
Niwassa Clement Because of the passing of Mike’s mother, Niwassa Clement, beginning in 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 and we were able to continue that this year as well. 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. Stuart Career Tech High School added for 2021 This year, in addition to the scholarships we traditionally give to GCCISD's three main high schools, plus IMPACT Early College High School and Peter Hyland Center, we are adding Stuart Career Tech High School for the first time. We are now covering all of the secondary schools in the district!
Total Awarded Since 2017 Since our first scholarship awards in 2017, FOMC has now awarded $45,500 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!

2021 Golf Tournament – 10/16/2021 - SAVE THE DATE Eagle Pointe Golf Club - Mont Belvieu, TX
More details will be available soon.
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 2022 and beyond.
