Without the BRTC Foundation members, golf tournament sponsors, donors, and countless volunteers, eighteen studentscholarships of $2000 each would not be possible. Karen Liebhaber, BRTCâ€™s Vice President of Institutional Advancement, states, â€œTo thank everyone adequately is impossible, but please know that I truly appreciate the effort and generosity of everyone who continues to make the golf tournament a success and supports the college and its students.â€
