Campion Academy hosted their 25th annual Reeder Golf Classic at Highland Meadows Golf Course on Friday, September 17. The Reeder Classic, associated with Campion’s alumni weekend, promotes networking among the alumni and community and raises funds for Campion’s student financial aid fund. Alumni and friends attended the Reeder Classic from all over the Denver metro area, Seattle, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, Chicago and North Carolina.
“It was a gorgeous day to play golf with family, friends, and alumni,” says principal Don Reeder. “Several of the players were students I’ve worked with over the years at Campion Academy. I was thrilled for their support, and for the new friends who joined us in support of our students and their financial aid needs.”
The Reeder Classic was supported by sponsors Centura Health-Avista Adventist Hospital as the dinner sponsor and Campion Church as the gift sponsor.
The Reeder Classic is named for Don Reeder, current principal and former men’s dean in Campion’s men’s residence hall for 30 years. The tournament was named for him because of his ability to connect and keep in touch with students long after they’ve graduated. The Reeder Classic was originally started by alumnus Kenny Gregerson, ’71, who then worked together with Reeder, Chris Gaines, and Kevin Binder, ’73, to build the tournament up in the mid 1990s.
The winners of the Reeder Golf Classic were Scott Fardulis ’90, Jim Lee ’89, Sam Lee ‘89, and Chuck Geiger ‘90.
