Join Hesston College alumni and friends at the Hesston College Student Scholarship Golf Benefit at the Hesston Golf Park. The event kicks off Homecoming Weekend, A Campus Transformation, Sept. 25 to 27. More Homecoming details are available at hesston.edu/homecoming.

This year’s benefit will honor Larry Martin, 1956 Academy graduate, Board of Overseers member from 1984-92 and Development Officer from 1999-2013. His wife Donna (Bontrager) is a 1956 Academy graduate and member of the college class of 1958. The Martins take an interest in and support students in many ways.

The proceeds from the 2015 benefit will provide nursing scholarships in honor of Larry and Donna Martin, as well as benefit the Hesston College Student Scholarship Fund, which provides institutional scholarships and grants for 99 percent of full-time students. Each year, Hesston awards more than $4.5 million in student tuition assistance.
