Pueblo Community College President Dr. Patty Erjavec summed it up very well when she said “today’s weather is alot like our students–we start out with some adversity but eventually we are brightly shining in the end.”

What could have been a dreary and rainy day turned out to be a warm and sunny finale as 35 teams hit the links at Pueblo Country Club Friday to support the scholarship program of the Pueblo Community College Foundation.
