By MHA News — Mile High Academy (MHA) hosted its annual Alumni Golf Tournament on Friday, September 24 at Plum Creek Golf Club. Located in Castle Rock, the golf course came alive with banter about the next hole-in-one, who’s been practicing and hellos of reconnecting friends.
“Playing in the MHA Alumni Golf Tournament is a fun way to support our school while enjoying a round of golf,” said Dr. Kris Fritz, golfer and MHA parent. “It’s great seeing the students, staff, parents, grandparents, and community members come together for a great cause every year.” Dr. Fritz’s wife, Dr. Tiffany Fritz, owns Piney Creek Family Dentistry and was a sponsor of this year’s golf tournament.
The golf tournament went ahead as scheduled even though MHA’s administration and board voted to move the school’s Alumni weekend to the Spring of 2022. And while the tournament was a little lighter on attendance this year, more than 30 players who came out to enjoy the beautiful weather. Congratulations to Andy Rockwood who won the $100 Putting Green competition and to the Castle Rock Adventist Hospital team for winning the tournament with 15 under par.
Littleton Adventist Hospital also sponsored this year’s event. Dany Hernandez, lead chaplain, reflected on the day by saying, “Littleton Adventist Hospital loves partnering with Mile High Academy for their annual golf tournament. Over the years, we continue to see the positive impact Mile High Academy makes, not only for the students that attend the school, but also to the community that we all care for.”
He continued, “The leadership at Mile High Academy puts on a fantastic event that brings together individuals who would otherwise not have the opportunity to be together. Most importantly, it helps raise funds for a great cause.”
MHA is currently planning for its in-person Alumni weekend celebration in April 2022. The weekend will kick-off with Grandparents Day on Friday, April 8 followed by Alumni Sabbath on Saturday, April 9 and the school’s Annual Auction at Topgolf on Sunday, April 10.
“Thank you to each golfer and sponsor who joined us this past Friday in support of Adventist education,” said Andrew Carpenter, MHA principal. “MHA is a close-knit community; one I am thankful to have joined. I appreciated the opportunity to make several new friends all while raising money for our school. God is here at MHA as we continue our mission of a Christ-centered education for not only this generation but for future generations to come.”
