The scholarship provides financial support to female club managers interested in furthering their professional development. Recipients receive the tuition costs and travel expenses to attend their choice of one of CMAA’s Business Management Institutes.

Curt Kelley, CCM of Preston Trail Golf Club shares: “I had the privilege of working with Sally at Lakewood Country Club in Dallas, TX. I met her while I was a student at University of North Texas studying hospitality and I caught the opportunity of a lifetime when she agreed to allow me to intern and then work for her for five years until she retired. Sally’s career spanned 41 years of service. She was wholeheartedly committed to CMAA networking and education programs and strongly encouraged involvement in CMAA and civic leadership positions. Sally would be proud to know her name is attached to this scholarship providing continuing education to women in our industry.”
