Inaugural “Speeding for Scholarships” Event

Inaugural “Speeding for Scholarships” Event

The inaugural speeding for Scholarships Go Karting Tournament raced into Caddo Mills Friday, June 3rd.

The goal of the Royse City Chamber of Commerce was to raise funding to present an additional college scholarship in 2017. Each year it means a great deal for our Chamber to have the privilege of awarding (2) $1,000 Scholarships to graduating high school seniors in the Royse City School District.

It was exciting to hold an event where people of all ages – Men, Women, Boys and Girls –could participate and win awards. Our hope is those who were there will be so enthusiastic over how much fun it was that they will go to their places of business and encourage them to put teams together for next year. It’s a wonderful team building experience and a really fun way for employees to get to know one another better outside of work.

Congratulations to the Adult Winner and overall Race Champion Jacob Tillet pictured on the left. We enjoyed photobombing by the adult refreshments and took time for a group shot of some of the board/volunteers. Winner of Adult 16-20 was AJ Raley and winner of Children 8-17 was Mart Dennis. Thanks to our volunteers and those who attended. It was a fun event!!
