6th Annual Patrick John Fox Memorial Golf Classic Invitation

We are less than 6 weeks away from the 6th Annual Patrick John Fox Memorial Golf Classic! With your help and support we have graciously given out more than $10,000 in scholarship money and another $5,000 in support of various families in need. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine we will still be going strong more than half a decade later! I cannot express enough gratitude for your continued support; let’s keep this thing going for another 6 years!

We are in our final year of our dedicated $10,000 scholarship to a former Turpin High School student, one whom considered Pat a mentor and role model. He followed in Pat’s footsteps by coaching the Turpin Freshman football team, going undefeated and being named the ECC champs. He also excels in the classroom, posting a 3.82 GPA last semester. After a successful internship in the renewable energy industry, he accepted a position in San Diego, CA to pursue a career in this field. It is clear his life continues to be impacted by Pat’s legacy and our contributions have helped him blossom into the young man he is today. It has truly come full circle as he coaches the freshman team, as Pat did for him close to 10 years ago. Congratulations, JR.

Our fund also continues to support the Turpin High School scholarship in Pat’s name, to those on the offensive line identified by the football coaching staff as deserving to wear Pat's #53, honoring his memory each time they suit up. Although the students did not know Pat directly, the privilege of wearing his number is considered a high honor both on and off the field. We received two solid applicants this year and will provide a further update on these student athletes after the outing.

I can’t wait to see everyone at this year’s outing and more importantly, to wear the Champions jacket to the post-outing cookout! Bring your A-game and it could end up in your closet!

Athletic Dept. Goals

We are excited about the opportunity to serve your family! We recognize the value of interscholastic athletics in the educational process and the values that young people develop when they have the opportunity to participate in activities outside of the traditional classroom. We further encourage the development and promotion of sportsmanship, ethics and integrity in all phases of the educational process and in all segments of our Spartan community.

Ten Goals of Turpin Athletics:

1. To offer and support a comprehensive interscholastic program.

2. To promote healthy choices including no drugs, no alcohol and no tobacco.

3. To focus on the development of skill at all levels.

4. To encourage student participation at all levels, however, as students progress through the system, it is understood that playing time will need to be earned and participation is not guaranteed.

5. To develop student/athletes who display good sportsmanship at all times. Good sportsmanship consists of: • Showing respect for opponents at all times. • Showing respect for officials and their decisions. • Knowing, understanding, and following the rules of the contest. • Maintaining self-control at all times. • Recognizing and appreciating outstanding skill and performance.

6. To develop a competitive, winning attitude. Winning is important.

7. To encourage individual commitment to personal and team goals.

8. To promote pride in the school and the athletic program. DO YOUR BEST!

9. To develop student leadership skills through team interaction.

10. To encourage parent and community participation in the total sports program via team parent groups and the Athletic Booster Club.

Though it’s not possible for us to provide the perfect experience for everyone involved, it doesn’t mean that we won’t try. We want to serve you in a way that helps your child/family have the best Educational Athletic experience possible.

Go Spartans!
