ARGILLITE, Ky. - The Hillcrest-Bruce Mission is hosting the 29th annual Gordon Scott Memorial 4-Person Team Golf Scramble at River Bend Golf Club in Argillite on Saturday, June 1. This is one of the Mission’s two major fundraisers for the year, and registration is currently open.

“Our Work Placement Program seeks to eliminate generational poverty,” said Mike Maynard, executive director of the Mission. “We accept parents receiving government assistance and provide mentorship and Adult Education to help them earn their GED and/or get them ready for college. Over the last year, three have earned their GED and nine are in college (two of those on the Dean’s List and one was just accepted into the RN program). And, our first work placement student graduates with a degree this Spring! We have also had two of our work placements secure full-time jobs. This is a hand-up to help eliminate poverty.”
