The 2019 Classic was played on Monday, September 30th, at Creighton Farms Golf Club. For the third consecutive year, the Classic was a pro-am event with 30 golf professionals playing with the 29 teams entered. One of the pros, Chris Oleson of the University of Maryland Golf Club, shot a hole-in-one on the ninth hole.
For the second straight year, the winning team – representing Cisco – was composed of Stu Fedderson, Vince Scheivert, Mark Tashiro and Jeff Long. They shot a 51 on the par-72 course.
Finishing second was the Sigmon Family Investments team of Dean Sigmon, Chad Sigmon, Peter Fulcer, Chris Laughlin and Robert Blumer Jr. with a 60. Third place went to the Virts-Miller Family Foundation team (Hunter Stone, Corbin Brown, Justin Wooldridge and Conley Bartelt) with a 61.
Barry Conti won the long-drive competition. Danny McKenzie won the closest-to-the-hole contest for men; Brooke Wenger for the women.
Moseley Architects and Cigna were the primary sponsors for this event.
Next year’s LEF Golf Classic will be held on October 5th at Creighton Farms.
The Loudoun Education Foundation (LEF) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation that engages businesses and community partners to fund critical and exceptional programs that foster the academic success and well-being of students and teachers in Loudoun County Public Schools. Fred Flemming, a former School Board member who helped found the LEF in 1991, originated the LEF Golf Classic.
Since its formation, the LEF has given more than $6,437,000 to support Loudoun’s students and teachers.
The LEF provides funding for teacher and division-wide grants that support innovative programs and special initiative grants that focus on our students’ well-being and academic success. LEF’s commitment to help families in need is demonstrated through its Community School model at Sterling Elementary School, which will be extended to five additional elementary schools next year, and the Backpack Coalition, which provides food for food-insecure students during the weekend. Annually, the LEF sponsors the Loudoun County Public Schools International Youth Leadership Summit, the Regional Science and Engineering Fair and various professional development opportunities, such as the Inspire Loudoun teacher conference. The LEF awards scholarships to current Loudoun County teachers and classified employees for pursuing graduate degrees, advanced training and teacher licensure.
