Beartooth Golf Classic

BILLINGS -

High school Seniors across south east Montana got a little help from some golfers Friday.

Briarwood Country Club hosted the Beartooth Golf Classic. The National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors supports an outreach program for graduating seniors in Montana heading to college for a business curriculum. According to NAIFA Representative Rick Halmes, 22 teams helped to raise a thousand dollar scholarship awarded to five graduating seniors.

"When we started out it was hard to get applicants, now advisors in schools, some of the golf coaches we've let know what might have golf kids going into business curriculum, the word is getting out there and college is expensive and so we're finding outstanding college seniors," says Halmes.

Participants also had the chance to view a selection of class cars and vote for their favorite, all prize money going towards the scholarship fund.
