On a beautiful sunny August day, the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) held its 19th annual golf tournament to raise funds for scholarships for Alaskan students pursuing a degree in the construction industry. Over the years, the Alaska Chapter of NAWIC has provided over $65,000 in scholarships. Ahtna Environmental, Inc. was a Presenting Sponsor for the event, and we fielded two teams comprised of Vivian Tokar, Matt Flynn, Greg Jarell, and Morgan Bruno as well as Morgan Miller, Rachel Thompson, Russell James, and Michael Selhay. Fun was had by all, especially at the “Funky Club Challenge” where players had to donate to the scholarship to NOT have to tee-off with a funky club (either a hockey stick, baseball bat, or shovel). I was part of the organizing committee that planned the event, and our Ahtna Special Forces participant, Angel Edwin, volunteered her time to help make the event happen.
