Dyersburg State Community College (DSCC) held its inaugural Henry County Center Golf Tournament on April 12, 2024, at the Paris Landing State Park Golf Club in Paris, Tennessee. The event aimed to provide a fun, competitive experience for the participating teams and raise funds to support DSCC Henry County Center student scholarships.

With an impressive performance, Team Ridgeway won the 12-team tournament; Team Ridgeway consisted of Henry County Mayor, Mr. John Penn Ridgeway, Mr. Chris Burton, Mr. Randal French, and Mr. Rodney McKinney. Team White & Associates Wimberley Dyer Agency came in second place, with team members including Mr. Jon Dyer, Mr. Rob Hessing, Mr. Brent Owens, and Mr. Robert Hawley. Team First Bank was represented by Mr. Justin Muller, Mr. Jeff Fagan, Mr. David Burden, and Mr. Troy Buttrey, who placed third. Graciously, all teams returned their winnings to support the DSCC Henry County Scholarship Fund. The tournament was successful, with sponsorship and donations totaling $3,266.

In addition to the competitive rounds of golf, participants enjoyed a series of engaging contests throughout the day. We are pleased to congratulate the following contest winners: Mr. Dustin McClure for the Putting Contest, Mr. Justin Muller for the Longest Drive Contest, and Mr. Jon Dyer for the Closest to the Pin Contest.

The event’s success was made possible through the generous support of our sponsors. We sincerely thank the platinum sponsor, Because of Jesus, and the gold sponsor, Servpro of LBL. In addition, our following hole sponsors were Republic Services, White & Associates Wimberly Dyer Agency, TCAT – McKenzie, and TCAT – Henry/Carroll. Lastly, we would like to thank our beverage sponsor, Coca-Cola, for providing beverages for participants and our door prize sponsor, BSN, who sponsored golf towels for the teams. The sponsors’ commitment to our institution and the communities we serve is truly commendable, and we are grateful for their partnership.

“At Dyersburg State, we are overjoyed with the turnout for our first annual golf tournament to support our Henry County Center. Since we joined the community officially in July 2023, we have been encouraged and humbled by the support of our work in Henry County and the community’s engagement with us,” stated President Scott Cook.
