Carmel student receives Evans scholarship


Nine Hoosier high school caddies have been awarded the Chick Evans Caddie Scholarship through the Western Golf Association, which will bring the 2012 BMW Championship to Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel, in September. Carmel High School student Jackson Schuette is among the recipients.

Each recipient is a caddie with a unique story to tell, reflecting the scholarship’s four selection criteria, including a strong caddie record, excellent academics, demonstration of financial need and outstanding character.

WGA directors and Evans Scholars alumni interviewed each of the recipients at a selection meeting Feb. 1 at Crooked Stick, as they sought to capture a spot in one of the nation’s largest privately-funded scholarship programs. The full college tuition and housing scholarship is valued at an estimated $17,500 annually, and is renewable for up to four years.
