Team N.C. State hits the links, earns $32,500 for Special Education Services
June 5, 2016
For the second year in a row, the golf skills of N.C. State Head Football Coach Dave Doeren (above) and former football and baseball standout Terry Harvey yielded a major donation to Wake County Schools' Special Education Services.
Doeren and Harvey finished tied for second place in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge, a three-day golf tournament featuring university head coaches and celebrity alumni competing for $560,000 in scholarship money.
The N.C. State team took home $60,000, $32,500 of which will go to Wake County SES. The money will be used to purchase adaptive technology for students who otherwise wouldn't be able to use devices. The remainder of his winnings will help fund scholarships at N.C. State.
Coach Doeren presented Karen Hamilton, assistant superintendent for SES, with the check on June 2.
Prior to the presentation, Karen Hamilton and several members of her staff were given a tour of NC State Football facilities, along with the star of the show, Jaiden, a 4th grader at Hilburn Academy and a HUGE Wolfpack fan!
Pictured are Kimberly Carter, Jaiden's mom, Stephanie Shaw and Tiffany Maddox, who all work in special education. The tour was facilitated and led by Coach Doeren's assistant, Natalie Brincefield.
