Last year, the Stephens & Smith Golf Outing raised just over $2,500 from our Annual Golf Tourney. All proceeds from the Annual Golf Tournament go towards deserving students enrolled at either a 2-year or 4-year construction program in Nebraska. In addition, the scholarship committee awarded $500 towards a newly developed AGC student chapter at Metropolitan Community College in Omaha. Here are short bios of our four student scholarship recipients.
