For the seventh consecutive year, the Carl D. Perkins Job Corps Center co-hosted the Trooper Island Golf Tournament at Stone Crest Golf Course in Prestonsburg, Ky. The recently held event raised more than $10,000 for Trooper Island, a camp for Kentucky low-income, high-risk youth. The camp was started in 1965 by the Kentucky State Police so all Kentucky youth would have the opportunity to enjoy summer camp, regardless of their family’s income status. More than 100 area golfers turned out to support the Post 9 Kentucky State Police golf tournament.
Food for the event was provided by Horizons Youth Services, operators of the Carl D. Perkins Job Corps Center. The Perkins Culinary Arts Class catered the lunch while Hotel & Lodging students manned ‘satellite stations’ throughout the course, serving snacks and beverages to golfers.
