I’ve received scholarship money from the J. Wood Platt Fund every year since I started college in 2009, and it truly has been an enormous help in funding my undergraduate and graduate degrees. Caddying in general has provided me with life experience and the contacts necessary to establish myself professionally. I could not be more grateful to the J. Wood Platt Fund and Lookaway Golf Club for helping me through school the past seven years.”
Greg Walsh, Waynesborough Country Club
Without the J. Wood Platt Scholarship, it would have been much more difficult for me to deal with my finances during and after college. It definitely gave me a better appreciation for my caddying career from 8th grade through college. I appreciate everything that J. Wood Platt and GAP has done for my college career and I couldn’t be more grateful for the donors to the fund.”br>
Philip Blonski, The Springhaven Club
The J. Wood Platt Caddie Scholarship has left a lasting impact on my life to this point because it allowed me to pursue my dreams by helping me attain a college degree. Without the financial aid provided to me by the Trust, I may not have been able to attend Drexel University, which has opened so many doors for me both professionally and socially.
Furthermore, JWP has provided me with a greater respect for the game of golf and allowed me to be a part of a unique family that is the JWP Alumni. I feel so proud to join such a generous and proud family as this and look forward to doing my part in helping future generations benefit from such a great organization. Thank you J. Wood Platt for all that you have done for me and all that you continue to do for others!”br>
