The Carrier Family established this scholarship as a way to give back to the community and to help a student who exemplifies the Nine Core Values that The First Tee promotes: honesty, integrity, respect, sportsmanship, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy and judgement. These values represent some of the many inherently positive characteristics connected with the game of golf and life
The deadline to apply for the Michael L. Carrier Scholarship is April 1st, 2022 and we ask that you submit your completed application in person or mail to The First Tee – Shenandoah Valley, 690 Garbers Church Road, Harrisonburg, VA 22801.

To apply, complete the application by April 1 and submit it to The First Tee.

The Michael L. Carrier Memorial Fundraiser golf outing has been held at Heritage Oaks Golf Course for the last eight years (this year’s tournament date is August 21, 2021). The local youth development non-profit, focusing on core values and life skills around the game of golf, have been proud to partner with the Carrier family. From this year’s fundraising success one local senior was awarded a $1000 scholarship. Jaiden Brooks, a senior from Harrisonburg High School, was awarded the MLC Scholarship. Jaiden plans to attend Frostburg State University and play soccer this Fall. This is the sixth $1000 scholarship provided to a deserving student in the last five years.
All proceeds of the tournament benefit The First Tee – Shenandoah Valley network that is operating in Harrisonburg/Rockingham County, Staunton/Waynesboro/Augusta County and Page and Shenandoah County.
