Golf Tournament Benefits Local Families

Law Enforcement students and faculty at Centennial Golf Course
April 24, 2019

College of Western Idaho’s Law Enforcement program hosted their second-annual golf tournament Friday, April 19, at Centennial Golf Course. Law Enforcement student, Ashley Childers, took the lead in setting up the tournament. Students contacted sponsors, donors, and players to participate tripling the amount of teams who played and securing one major sponsor for the tournament. At last year’s inaugural event, the group raised nearly $2,500 for the Nampa Family Justice Center, a partnership of agencies dedicated to ending family violence and sexual assault. This year, the group raised $5,375 for the cause, more than doubling last year’s total!  

I couldn’t be more proud of our students and our LE Program staff for their great work,” commented LeRoy Forsman, Senior Coordinator of the Law Enforcement Program. “I’m grateful to our community for stepping up to support battered and endangered families in our area.  The staff from the Family Justice Center was just blown away by what was accomplished.  We’re excited to begin preparation for next year’s tournament!”
