Golf kudosThe organizing committee met recently to put plans in place for the 13th annual Memorial University of Newfoundland Scholarship Golf Tournament, scheduled for The Wilds of Salmonier, Sept. 14, 2010. The committee used the opportunity to recognize Dr. Bill Redden, the retired School of Human Kinetics director and professor who co-ordinated the event since its inception and who is moving from the province and retiring from the committee.
Under Dr. Redden’s leadership and with the ongoing support of event partner, Scotiabank Commercial Banking, and many other corporate sponsors, the tournament has raised over $215,000 and awarded close to $60,000 of that to scores of Memorial’s top students.
He received a plaque that read: “Presented to Dr. William (Bill) Redden in recognition of the formative role you played in the creation, growth and ultimate success of the tournament. Your leadership by example and dedication to the cause of student excellence at Memorial University are an inspiration to all who have worked with you and who have enjoyed this special event over the years. Thank you.” Committee members gathered for the presentation included, from left, Carolyn Harley, Psychology (retired); Hilda Wakeham Dunn, Alumni Affairs and Development; Arlene Riche, Scotiabank; Len Butt, tournament chair, Scotiabank (retired); Kathy Callahan; Bill Redden; Bill Bavis, Scotiabank; Peter Harley, Psychology (retired); Dave Kirkland, Facilities Management (retired); Mike Callahan, Computing and Communications (retired); and Peter Morris, Marketing and Communications.
