The money raised from this tournament will go toward the GUCA Scholarship Foundation, which helps support GUCA families with their children’s college tuitions.

“The utility contractors have given so much to the association,” said Executive Director Vikki McReynolds, and “it is time we give back.”

The foundation has given more than 50 scholarships within the past seven years.

The Georgia Utility Contractors Association Inc. Scholarship Foundation, founded in 2003, has made the dream of a scholarship program for its members become a reality. After many months of researching the possibilities of giving scholarships to members, the result was to form a separate scholarship foundation that would be tax deductible to the donor, all the while supporting the children of GUCA members. The goal of the foundation is to award children of members who will be graduating high school seniors and attending four year colleges and universities in Georgia with a scholarship that will assist the student with tuition and an Industry Scholarship for members’ children who are currently in a college or degree program that is industry specific: building construction; construction management; and/or, civil engineering. Winner(s) are chosen based on scholastic achievement, extra-curricular activities, community service, career goals, and completion of an essay.
