Golf Tourney Will Help Students Grow Into Business Leaders

Event is hosted by INROADS, which helps train underserved youth for corporate leadership.

Proceeds from an April 8 golf tournament at Country Club of the South in Johns Creek will help a non-profit in its mission of developing underserved diverse youth into corporate leaders.

Founded in 1970, INROADS today has some 25,000 alumni and more than 2,000 interns placed in top companies nationwide.

The organization was founded by Frank C. Carr, who was inspired by Martin Luther King Jr.

"He saw a lack of diversity in the corporate sector and wanted to give college students a jump start on their careers," said Zuleemah Edwards from the organization's Southeast office in Atlanta.

The golf tournament will aid the non-profit in its mission, and will include lunch at 11 a.m., shotgun start at noon and dinner and awards ceremony at 5 p.m. Registration is at 10:30 a.m.

Packages range from $375 for individual players to to $5,000 for company sponsorships and group play. Proceeds benefit the INROADS internship program. Click here to register.

The event's sponsors include Kimberly-Clark Corp., Travelers Insurance, PepsiCo, Wells Fargo and more. Other participants include Georgia Power and other leading global corporations.
