Golfers gathered Friday at the Stephen F. Austin Golf Club for the annual T.J. Mills-Ricky Seals Memorial Golf Tournament. The Sealy Tiger Booster Club has been sponsoring a scholarship golf tournament for more than 30 years, making it one of the longest-running endowment scholarship tournaments in Texas. Coach Mills, with the help of Dave Ellerbe of Mark III, Leroy Zapalac, president of Citizens State Bank, and Billy Browne of the Stephen F. Austin Golf Association, set up the scholarship tournament that rewards any graduating senior with a $500 scholarship. In the beginning, there were five scholarships awarded. Today the Booster Club offers 12 scholarships with the hope of increasing the number.
