Spotlight Archives

On the surface, the Evans Scholars Foundation is an organization that gives scholarships to caddies.

But look a little deeper, and you will find stories - the Evans Scholar who faced financial obstacles all his life, struggling to help support his family through homelessness; an Evans Alum whose ambitious lifework with satellite communications has connected U.S. military personnel and helped save lives during natural disasters; the Evans Alum and WGA Director who became a billionaire and began his own caddie academy.

In the Spotlight Archives, you will find not only these stories, but many, many more. Here, you can learn more about the Scholars - caddies who stood up to tough challenges and conquered them to make it to college; Alumni - caddies-turned-college graduates who use the education they received through the Evans Scholarship to do incredible things and better the lives of others; and WGA Directors - people who dedicate themselves to making sure hard-working young caddies get the education - and the future - they deserve.
