JKC Carolina Band Scholarship

Golf Tournament

Former students, band alumni respond to million-dollar scholarship challenge with golf tournament.

The Alumni Association of the Zeta Chi Chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi Band Fraternity is holding an annual golf tournament to honor the Director of Bands Emeritus of the University of South Carolina, the late James K Copenhaver. The tournament is played at the Indian River Golf Course (located at 200 Indian River Drive West Columbia, SC). The public is invited to participate.

The tournament honors Mr. Copenhaver’s tremendous impact in advancing music education in South Carolina and the entire nation, and for being a passionate inspiration to his many students and colleagues.

The tournament raises funds to match the $1 million gift Copenhaver gave in 2012 towards scholarships for the Carolina Band program. To date, $80,000 has been raised toward this goal.

Copenhaver’s donation is the largest gift of its type in the School of Music’s history and is expected to generate as much as $50,000 per year for undergraduate scholarships for the Carolina Band program.

The golf tournament is the most recent addition to the annual Carolina Band alumni weekend. The weekend events include a Friday night social, a silent auction and alumni members marching with the current Carolina Band at the football game.
