MIT CoSTx Golf Update

Dateline June 20, 2015
MIT’s local golfing alums traveled to Bastrop on June 20, to play the highly regarded Wolfdancer course at the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort.  Steve Koch OE ’80, Al Tervalon ’65, and Greg Turner ’74 played 18 holes on the rolling, challenging layout, experiencing topography unlike our normal Houston-area haunts.  It was a close match, featuring Turner’s 88, Koch’s 89, and Tervalon’s 93 (with only 30 putts!).  

Joining the golfers at Lost Pines were wives Jo Tervalon, Kathy Koch, and Ann Turner.  With dinner the evening prior and lunch after golf on Saturday, the group enjoyed a great time together.

The next golf event will be Sunday, September 13
in the afternoon, somewhere closer to Houston. For those interested in learning more, please contact Greg Turner at golf@mithouston.org

For those interested who are not on our email distribution list, feel free to contact Greg Turner at golf@mithouston.org .  Please join the MIT Club of South Texas if you haven’t already, make your contribution to the Annual Fund, and come on out and join us!

You can always read about the latest CoSTx Golf news on our dedicated Golf webpage.


Seeking volunteers for Star of Hope “Activities for Teens” Sessions

As part of its local community outreach the MIT Club of South Texas will host a series of educational enrichment programs for teen residents of the Star of Hope.  The programs will be held on Friday evenings at the Women & Family Emergency Shelter and Transitional Living Center in Houston.

Initial program topics include a demonstration by a robotics competition team, current direction of space exploration and technology careers in 2025 (medical, industrial, military, etc.). Each program would be a one-evening presentation with an engaging multifaceted curriculum designed for youth. Volunteers are needed for curriculum development as well as presenters including professionals to offer testimonials and encouragement.  Alumni may volunteer for either curriculum development or curriculum presentation tasks.
All participants in the presentations required to complete a Star of Hope Volunteer Application for advance clearance. Those seeking additional information or interested in joining a program night please contact David Brown at david-b@mithouston.org
