|Former Rocky Mount QB Eddie Coats|
Part of his new job is to assist with the supervision and success of Wesleyan’s fundraising efforts. And one of them is coming up in about a month.
The college will host The Wesleyan Cup golf tournament on April 8 at the Golf Club of Rocky Mount - located off N. Wesleyan Blvd.
Sponsored by Roger G. Taylor & Associates, the event is a significant source of academic, athletic and scholarship funding for Wesleyan students.
The college has a special commitment to the Rocky Mount area and to Eastern North Carolina. The Wesleyan community includes students from diverse cultural and racial backgrounds — many of whom are first generation college students. Historically, more than 90 percent of the students at Wesleyan receive financial aid to attend classes, and the demand for financial assistance has soared during the recession. Support from events such as this makes higher education opportunities possible for these worthy students.
