Morris Thompson Memorial Golf Classic

Doyon Foundation established the Morris Thompson Memorial Golf Classic in honor of the late Morris Thompson, who served as the president/CEO of Doyon, Limited from 1985 until his passing in 2000. The event raises money for Doyon Foundation’s Morris Thompson competitive scholarships.

2017 Golf Classic: Par 4 Education

Par 4 Education

The 2017 Morris Thompson Memorial Golf Classic will take place June 22 – 23 at the Chena Bend Golf Course located on Fort Wainwright Military Base in Fort Wainwright, Alaska. The theme of the 2017 golf classic is “Par 4 Education.”

Since inception, the Foundation has awarded 173 Morris Thompson competitive scholarships totaling $370,180. One of this year’s recipients is Jessica Ullrich of Anchorage. Ullrich attends the University of Washington, where she’s completing a doctorate in social welfare. She offers guest lectures at UW and the University of Alaska Anchorage, volunteers at her children’s school, and serves as a co-president of the Native Organization of Indigenous Scholars.

“Without Doyon Foundation’s support, I wouldn’t be where I am today,” says Jessica, whose bachelor’s and master’s degrees also were supported with Foundation scholarships.
