DeKalb, Ill. – The Northern Illinois University College of Law Alumni Council held its 10th Annual Golf Outing on Friday, June 6, 2014 at River Heights Golf Course in DeKalb, IL. Golfers drove and putted their way around the course on a beautiful afternoon, all to have a good time and raise money for student scholarships. Proceeds from the generosity of sponsors and golfers go towards the NIU Law Alumni Council Scholarship program, which gives an annual scholarship to a graduating student, and supports other student-related programming events.
This year’s winning foursome included alumnus Riley Oncken (’04) and his teammates Jason Friedrichs, Grant Goltz and Jason Hiland. Other program highlights included committee co-chair Nick Valadez (’89) presenting prizes to the top golfers of the day. Valadez also brought and introduced our newest golf mascot, a large stuffed Huskie, which became the centerpiece of many treasured photos during the evening and served as a proud symbol of the NIU spirit.
