Orlando, FLA (April 19, 2013) – Nautique announces the creation of a new award, the Nautique Junior Masters Scholarship, that will be available to competitors of the 21st Junior Masters at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, GA, May 24, 2013. This scholarship is intended for the athlete who has the potential to excel as a leader not only on the water but also off the water.
The scholarship funds will come from proceeds of The Kikkor Cup, a golf event during the prestigious 54th Masters Water Ski & Wakeboard Tournament at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Ga., on Friday, May 24, 2013. Nautique is committed to matching up to $1,000 of the amount collected. Participants of the Kikkor Cup golf event are sponsors and athletes of the tournament.
“Nautique is thrilled to offer a scholarship to a Junior Masters athlete; these athletes are the future of our sport and anything we can do to help them succeed is consistent with our Nautique Cares philosophy,” stated Nautique’s President/CEO Bill Yeargin.
