The Chesapeake Bay Governor’s School (CBGS) Education Foundation will sponsor a golf tournament on Friday, June 28, at Hobbs Hole Golf Course in Tappahannock in honor of retired faculty member Randy Brown.
Editor’s note: Ms. Brown passed away on June 16, 2013 shortly after this article was written. Her obituary can be found here.
Registration for the tournament begins at 8 a.m. with tee time at 9 a.m. The format is a four-person scramble with other challenges available throughout the morning. Following the golf tournament, players will have a barbecue lunch which is available to non-golfers for $15.
“Randy has been the embodiment of excellence in education for the Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck for the past 40 years,” said a Governor’s School spokesperson. “As a teacher of mathematics, he has taught with a no-nonsense rigor that has challenged students to rise to their personal best and become truly educated. All the while, Randy has maintained a deep sense of humor, an incredible sense of style and a genuine love of her profession and her students.
“When alumni from Chesapeake Bay Governor’s School return for visits, they simply state, ‘I had Ms. Brown,’ with a look of strong confidence on their faces that they wear as a badge of achievement. In a time, when our society has often denigrated teaching as a profession, Randy, through her professionalism and dedication, has stood as an inspiration to younger generations of teachers. She has touched many minds and hearts in her impressive career, and she will continue to inspire generations of us through her teaching legacy and shining spirit,” said the spokesperson.
Information about the golf tournament is available on the foundation website at http://www.cbgsfoundation.com, or can be obtained by calling the school at 758-6788. The registration fee is $75 per golfer and all donations are tax-deductible. This event is the major fund-raising effort for the CBGS Education Foundation. Its goal is to raise funds to support the academic and field studies programs for the students. This year the foundation purchased new kayaks, the necessary equipment for their use, and repaired and updated the kayak trailer. It also provided scholarships to students in financial need.
