In loving memory…

of Benjamin McGraw, a Concord University freshman who loved golf, boxing, skiing and time with his family and friends.  He had graduated from the Hank Haney International Junior Golf Academy in Hilton Head, S.C.  His love of golf also included teaching young golfers at The First Tee of Beckley each summer and he planned to attend the Golf Academy of America in pursuit of a career working with the future participants of the game he was so passionate about.  As we celebrate the 13th anniversary of this annual event, we continue to honor Ben and his family who have always dedicated themselves to growing the game not only in Raleigh County but throughout the state of West Virginia.
