DONNA M. FURNIER TOURNAMENT IS A GO AGAIN
June 1, 2021
One thing that can be said about our former Superintendent, she loved basketball. So much, she rarely missed a game featuring Jefferson-Morgan - boys or girls.
In her honor, we will be hosting the Donna M. Furnier Girls Tip-Off Tournament on December 10 and 11, 2020, as we kick off the winter sports season the next school year..
Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the Donna M. Furnier Scholarship Fund. Majority of the proceeds in the scholarship fund have been gathered through donations and the summer golf tournament.
The basketball tournament will feature our Jefferson-Morgan girls team and will include Carmichaels, Lincoln Park, Waynesburg, Carmichaels, and Beth Center. Match-ups and times are attached.
"We are very excited about this coming season's tournament because of the name attached and the fact we lost it last year to Covid," said Athletic Director Scot Moore. "Hopefully, we can find a title sponsor also to help fund the tournament and help with the overall expenses that come with doing something like this. I know Donna would have loved sitting in her spot in the bleachers watching our athletes compete. She loved basketball and she loved our kids."
