OAK RIDGE _ Lakeland Bank’s recent annual scholarship golf outing raised $225,000 to be awarded in 2020 to local students pursuing a higher education, the bank announced.
The outing was held Sept. 24 at Crystal Springs Resort in Hardyston.
“We not only had a record turnout of golfers this year, we also far exceeded our goal to raise $200,000,” said Thomas Shara, president and CEO of Lakeland Bank. “Due to the tremendous success of this event, we have decided to add additional high schools and colleges to the program as we remain committed to providing scholarships to students in all the markets we serve who have demonstrated academic success and want to attend college.”
Lakeland Bank awarded $190,000 in scholarships earlier this year to students who were selected by their school and demonstrated academic success and an interest in pursuing a higher education.
