Support Athletic Scholarships

"This athletic scholarship is very important to me and motivates me to pursue excellence in my academic and

athletic career. I am going to be a first generation graduate, and the first of four siblings to seek the benefits

from higher education. I plan on becoming a teacher, and a coach, so I can teach students in the classroom

and on the field. One of my goals is to help all kids be comfortable in their own body and gain confidence

in who they are; because the more confident they are in themselves, the more likely they are to succeed

and pursue their dreams. Students come from all walks of life, I want to stress the importance of embracing

diversity and teach them the importance of working together. Again, thank you for this gift.

I am grateful for the people in this world who already want to see me make my dreams a reality.”

The Rickard Family organizes this Golf Event annually in honor of their father, Paul Rickard who was a tenured SUNY Orange Mathematics faculty member, and basketball and golf coach. The Golf Outing raises money for athletic scholarships which are awarded to SUNY Orange student athletes who otherwise might not be able to attend college or play the sport that they love. 

This year's event is taking place on Monday, June 17, 2024  at West Hills Country Club in Middletown. Registration is at 10:30 am, with golf starting at noon and a lovely reception dinner after golf. Please register below.
