This year’s 10th Annual Wes Whiddon Memorial Golf Tournament will be held on Saturday, April 13, 2019 at the Fleming Island Golf Club.  The tournament is held annually to raise money for the Wes Whiddon Scholarship Fund.  The Wes Whiddon Athletic Scholarship was established in 2009 by the OPJH Athletic Department in order to help local kids go to college.  The scholarship is available to any graduating Clay County, FL Student-Athlete that  played sports at the Junior High or High School level while attending a Clay County School.

Each recipient to date has received $1042 in tuition assistance.  All Clay County High Schools have had at least one recipient to date.  Largely due to community support, the fund has been fortunate enough to award almost $70,000 in scholarships to Clay County graduates in honor of Wesley Whiddon.  Playing college football and receiving a college education was Wesley’s dream.  Our goal is to help make Wesley’s dream of a college education a reality for as many Clay County Student-Athletes as possible.
