Pope County Chamber Gives Generous Gift to SIC

May 23, 2019

Every year the Southeastern Illinois College Foundation as well as the SIC Archery team host the Rodney J. Brenner Memorial Buddy Bass Tournament located at the Golconda Marina on the Ohio River’s Smithland Pool.

For years the Golconda/Pope County Chamber of Commerce has shared their scales for weigh-in with Southeastern. Fortunately for SIC, the Chamber has now gifted the scales to the SIC Foundation.

“The Chamber has been very generous to gift the foundation these scales,” said SIC Institutional Advancement Controller/Accountant. “It helps our fundraiser tremendously by allowing the funds to go toward the scholarship, not a set of scales. Both the Foundation and the Archery Team are thankful for such great community support!”
