TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The Country Club of Terre Haute gave the Evans Scholarship Wednesday to Eli Storey, a senior at Terre Haute South and a caddie at the club.
Though allowing that he himself was “not good at golf, for sure,” Storey said the Evans Scholarship became a goal for him since joining the Country Club as a caddie in 8th grade. “It means a lot to receive it,” he said. “I pride myself on my academics. That comes first for me.
The four-year scholarship provides full college tuition and housing. Storey will attend Indiana University at Bloomington and major in biotechnology.
Supported by a caddie program managed locally by the Country Club of Terre Haute, the
Evans Scholars Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 1930 to provide college tuition
and housing scholarships to caddies who demonstrate high character, high scholastic achievement
and financial need.
Storey was the first local Evans Scholar named in over 40 years, and the fifth
Evans Scholar in the history of the club’s caddie program.
