Rhonda Sullivan, director of Donor Relations, said registration for the Friday, June 1, event has already hit 240 golfers, up from 225 last year. "It's shaping up to be a major success," Sullivan said. "It's the largest attended golf outing Kettering has for alumni, corporate partners and friends."

The 15th annual golf outing is set for Woodfield Golf & Country Club and the Grand Blanc Golf & Country Club, both in Grand Blanc, Michigan "Once again, the Major Sobey Memorial Golf Outing will provide alumni, corporate partners and friends an opportunity to enjoy a special day on the links," she added. "Proceeds will again fund scholarships for Kettering University students."

The Memorial Golf Outing is named for Major Albert Sobey, who served as General Motors Institute's first president for 30 years starting in 1919. Major Sobey's son, Dr. Albert J. Sobey '45, will once again serve as the golf outing's honorary chairperson. The golf outing steering committee is made of a group of alumni volunteers:
