Eastern Texas Regional Association hosts 14th annual Alumni Golf Tournament
On October 26th, Marietta College alumni and friends gathered at the Cypresswood Golf Course in Spring, Texas, to play for a cause close to their hearts. Thirty-four alumni participated in the tournament and raised $12,145 to benefit the Department of Petroleum Engineering and Geology and the Marietta College Office of Alumni Relations.
“It was a pleasure to meet so many enthusiastic and dedicated alumni who came together to support future Petroleum Engineering and Geology students,” said Director of Alumni Relations Dawn Werry. “It was an outstanding event to benefit Marietta College and I appreciate our volunteers who dedicate their time and talent to organize this annual golf tournament to bring old and new friends together.”
The event, started by Martin Hupp ’86 and the late Larry Stoltzfus ’86, began as an annual gathering due to the large concentration of Petroleum Engineering and Geology alumni in the Houston, Texas, area. When the Marietta College Eastern Texas Regional Association was established a wider network of alumni began to participate. Alumni and friends always look forward to the event as a chance to reconnect with one another and to receive updates about the program from faculty.
“Retired Department of Petroleum Engineering and Geology professor Dr. Bob Chase always attends the event to support past alumni,” said Aleah Esparza ’09. “He continues to foster relationships with alumni and professionals to assist current student with internships and jobs upon graduation.”
This year, the tournament was organized by Martin Hupp ’86, Zachary Stoltzfus ’15, Aleah Esparza ’09, Stephanie Peloquin ’06, Travis Wells ’97 and Elizabeth Jones ’08.
The Marietta College Office of Advancement would like to thank everyone who participated, and we look forward to another successful tournament next year. Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the 15th annual Alumni Golf Tournament on Nov. 1, 2019!
