The Mike McCampbell Spirit of Rhody Golf Award is presented each year to a team member who displays courage, leadership and spirit. This year's award went to Sandra McCreight, longtime supporter of the program.
"When we started this award eight years ago, it was to honor Michael, who lost his battle with brain cancer a little more than a year after he graduated," Burke explained. "It was designed to go to a team member exclusively. Sandy and her husband Don have always been wonderfully supportive in every way possible, but this year Sandy was diagnosed with Stage Four cancer and was in the fight of her life. She was an inspiration to us and one of the reasons we had such a great second semester. Through the chemo and the dark days, she still took time to write or message us almost every single week. She is remarkable."
