McLennan Community College and the MCC men’s golf team will host Folds of Honor Night at 7 p.m. Nov. 30 in The Highlands gym as the Highlanders basketball team takes on the Fort Hood Phantom Warriors.
Folds of Honor (FOH) is a preferred charitable partner of the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) that honors fallen or severely wounded American soldiers. The program “works to ensure that no family is left behind in the fight to preserve American freedom. Through scholarships and other assistance, they give back to the spouses and children of soldiers killed or disabled in service to our country.”
MCC is one of approximately 10 schools from across the United States that have joined in the program and the only two-year college to participate for the 2017-2018 season. The Highlanders are honoring Sgt. 1st Class Albert A. Mersch by having an MCC team member carry a special golf bag displaying Mersch’s name, rank and branch of service at each of their tournaments this season.
The event will include free admission for all fans, the presentation of colors by the University High School ROTC and special halftime activities including the introduction of Mersch, Dash for Cash and other entertainment sponsored by the Waco Hippodrome.
