The Pitt-Johnstown Alumni Golf Classic, held Aug. 14, 2017, at the Windber Country Club, raised thousands of dollars for the Alumni Log Cabin Scholarship.

More than 100 golfers, supporters, and sponsors made the event a success and have made the scholarship possible.

Named for the Pitt-Johnstown Log Cabin, this scholarship is being established by the Pitt-Johnstown Alumni Association to support tuition costs for students who excel academically, demonstrate a commitment to Pitt-Johnstown, and dedicate time to community service.
