POINT LOOKOUT, Mo. – Bass Pro Shops Founder and CEO Johnny Morris presents a check for 500-thousand-dollars to College of the Ozarks President Jerry Davis during a special media event at Top of the Rock Golf Course.
The presentation was made possible due to the college’s ongoing volunteer efforts with the Legends of Golf tournament, as C of O is an official chartable beneficiary of the annual tournament.
Davis says the college is honored to receive such support from Morris and to continue their partnership with the tournament:
Davis adds the college also plans to present Morris a special gift in the form of two of the nine swans living on the C of O campus.
C of O contributed more than 180 volunteers for last year’s golf tournament, where college students, staff and faculty served as caddies, standard bearers, parking and security attendants, and Golf Channel assistants.
Volunteer opportunities are available to any interested community members.
