The application deadline for the third annual Joe Dumphy Memorial Golf Scholarship is quickly approaching. The last day to submit an application is March 17. Joe Dumphy was a freshman at North Forsyth High School when he died in July 2015 after sustaining injuries in a car accident as he left Chestatee Golf Club in Dawsonville. In what would have been his senior year, the scholarship board of directors hopes this year’s scholarship will be the biggest one yet. For the past two years, the memorial fund has provided over $15,000 in local scholarships. In 2017, the scholarship provided $8,250 in local scholarships and this year it is expected to break that record.
