Fort Morgan, CO. 06/06/13. Morgan Community College (MCC) announces the 2014-15 Brad Amack Memorial Scholarship recipient, Jason Pickett. The scholarship will assist Pickett during his next academic year with tuition and fees at MCC.
“I like to build—whether I’m working with wood or metal,” say Pickett, a May graduate of Brush High School; he would like to have a career in welding and fabrication.
Following tradition, Pickett will be recognized at the annual Brad Amack Memorial Softball Tournament. The softball tournament is scheduled for Saturday & Sunday, June 21-22 starting at 8:00 A.M. Entries ($150 per team) for the double–elimination softball event scheduled for the Joslin-Needham Softball Complex are due to Lance Schwindt at the City of Brush (970-842-5280) by June 18. The tournament is limited to sixteen teams with the top four to receive trophies.
In addition to the softball tournament, an auction of donated items from area businesses and individuals will be held following play on Saturday afternoon beginning at 1:00 p.m. Proceeds from this year’s tournament and auction from the City of Brush, together with the Amack’s, will benefit the Brad Amack Memorial Scholarship Endowment.
The Brad Amack Memorial Scholarship Endowment through the MCC Foundation has been providing financial support for MCC students since it was established in 1998 by Walter and Donna Amack in memory of their son, Brad. The couple initiated and ran the annual Brad Amack Memorial Softball Tournament in Brush to support the scholarship for several years. Although the organizational part of the tournament is now handled by the City of Brush Recreation Department, the Amacks continue their involvement in the event that is now in its 17th year.
