WAKE FOREST — Golfers are wanted for a team tournament this fall that will benefit a Heritage High service club.
The first ever Global Community Classic Golf Tournament will be held by Project Wisdom a world-service project club of Heritage High, to raise money and awareness for their mission. The tournament is Oct. 7, at Heritage Golf Club.
“Using education to solve real world problems is our main focus,” advisor and teacher, Miles Macleod.
The service club is an ambitious service-learning program at the high school and plans to send approximately a dozen students to Ghana next summer. These students will learn 21st century skills, critical thinking, problem solving and other essential skills to survive in today’s work environment.
In Ghana, the club will collaborate with organizations such as CARE, The Peace Corps and Passionate International. Together they will share ideas and learn the steps necessary to provide service projects to developing communities, for example building a well in a community in need of water or provide mosquito nets to prevent the spread of malaria.
When the students return, these ideas and methods will be shared with the service-project organizations adopted by the students of Heritage High. Students will then implement these ideas and use the skills to provide assistance to help solve global humanitarian issues.
Golfers can support Project Wisdom or any Heritage High club/program of their choice by signing up to play the tourney for a full day of golf, free food and prizes. The club is trying to reach a goal $13,000 by next summer through this golf tournament and other fundraising events. Contact Miles Macleod at 919-649-1200 or at [email protected]
The individual registration fee is $65 for students and $100 for adults. You may sign up individually or be placed on a four player team at registration. The deadline is Oct. 1.
