In 2002, Thomas Lonsbury — an avid golfer and member of the Information and Telecommunication Systems Management Advisory Board — suggested that the board establish a scholarship for outstanding ITS students and fund it with the proceeds of a golf classic. The Board agreed and promptly named Lonsbury chair of the Advisory Board Thomas Lonsbury Scholarship Golf Classic.

Lonsbury chaired the event until his death in 2012. That year’s tournament was the first to be called the Lonsbury Memorial Scholarship Golf Classic. Advisory Board member Garon Gentzel has taken over leadership of the event, which continues to be a successful fundraiser.

During the 2019 ITS Day awards banquet the Advisory Board had the pleasure of awarding 4 outstanding students the Thomas Lonsbury Memorial Scholarship. Please join us in congratulating Coal Wells, Adam Maslowski, Chandler Egli, and Keaton Huffman as the recipients of the 2019-20 Thomas Lonsbury Memorial Scholarship.  This continues the trend of presenting more than two awards in the same year, which would not be possible without your generous support and that of over 150 annual contributors to our fund. The ITS Advisory Board thanks you for your support!

Proceeds from our event benefit the students of Ohio University J. Warren McClure School of Information & Telecommunication Systems. In the past 17 years, we have built an endowed fund of over $150,000 and presented 27 scholarships to worthy Ohio University ITS students. The students’ success depends on you! Whether you are a past tournament player, or a new potential sponsor or player, your participation will help provide support to a deserving ITS student.

Sincerely,

Garon Gentzel
2019 Tournament Chair and ITS Advisory Board Member
