This website provides information on the Tom McElroy Scholarship and the Tom McElroy Golf Classic. We encourage Boston College alumni and friends to join us in the 2010 Tom McElroy Golf Classic.
The Scholarship is awarded each year to the soccer student-athlete who best exemplifies those qualities which made Tom so special. Although more than one individual can receive financial assistance, only one person is the "official" Tom McElroy Award recipient, whose name is recorded on a plaque permanently displayed in the trophy case in Conte Forum.
Dinner dances were held for 13 years to support the Scholarship, before moving to a golf classic in 1996. August 30, 2010 will mark the 15th Tom McElroy Golf Classic, and the 28th consecutive fund raiser in his name. It is particularly rewarding to see recipients, and former classmates and teammates of Tom, return each year. They come from throughout the United States to pay tribute to Tom.
This home page provides an overview of the Tom McElroy Scholarship. Other pages provide specifics on the Tom McElroy Golf Classic, including a registration form. Golf was not young Tom's game, but we know he would embrace the idea of 100 plus people coming together in the spirit of friendship to test their skills on a field of green, while having a great time raising money to support the Boston College men's and women's soccer programs, and help needy student-athletes at Boston College.
