The 6th Annual Rady Golf Classic, on October 6, 2014, was a success due to our many sponsors, participants, volunteers and the La Jolla Country Club. Thank you to everyone who made this day fun and memorable. The tournament concluded with an unprecedented three way tie for first place which was broken by a tiebreaker. After golf, participants enjoyed a cocktail hour and dinner where Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla, Rady School Dean Robert Sullivan and Rady MBA student, Martyn Gross, all spoke to attendees about the importance of their participation and the impact of their support.
The Rady Golf Classic benefits Rady School students by providing them with fellowship support. Fellowship support provides students with the essentials to continue their education and a chance to create a better future for themselves and our community.
As the Rady School enters its second decade and continues to educate the next generation of innovators, it is more important than ever to bring top students to the program. Enrolling these individuals, however, requires more than an excellent reputation — it takes financial support that enables candidates to select the Rady School over peer campuses vying for their enrollment. The Rady Golf Classic fellowship support has offered, and continues to offer, prospective students immediate assistance in financing their MBA and making the decision to attend the Rady School.
Fellowship recipient Martyn Gross spoke about the impact fellowship support has had on him personally. “When I think about what the Rady School does, it allows for a place where leaders can change in order to change people,” Gross said. “It is where leaders can find their voice in order to bring value. When you give to Rady you understand where innovation happens, where jobs will be created, where lives are really going to be impacted. I want to thank you not only as student and fellowship recipient perspective, but really from someone who is trying their best to make an impact in the community.”
To date, over $2.2 million has been distributed to 148 Rady students thanks to the many community members, corporations and participants of the Rady Golf Classic that have understood the need for financial assistance through private fellowships.
We are truly grateful for friends who have believed in the Rady School’s mission and values, and who have enabled us to provide educational opportunities with profound impact. We are excited to see how the fellowship support The Rady Golf Classic has funded will continue to transform our world in various ways.
