The TCJGA has given over $300,000 in scholarships since the program began in 1994. It started with a donation of $25,000 given to our scholarship fund from the estate of Charlie and Thelma Ireland. This, along with funds raised at our yearly Scholarship Tournament and Dinner, allow the association to give scholarships to members who qualify*. In addition, the Bob and Judy Lober Scholarship Program was established in 1994, the Jonkhoff Family Scholarship in 2007 and the Newhouse Family Scholarship in 2018.

In 2018, in addition to general scholarships, memorial scholarships will be given in the names of:

  • ArtKeillor
  • Bob Robinson
  • Bruce Keillor
  • Larry R. Kinney
  • Herb Domres
  • Mike Teter
  • Scott C. Cook
  • Stefan Schofield
  • Steve White
