In 2013, The County Club at Castle Pines (CCCP) created a scholarship foundation, including a formal selection committee, to identify recipients for its scholarships. Each year, CCCP members contribute to the fund, which provides financial support to deserving CCCP employees.
The scholarship foundation helps employees with education and related expenses, as well as future college planning. Scholarship criteria is based on scholastic honors, community service and involvement, work ethic and tenure, ambition and overall financial need. This year, CCCP members donated more than $60,000, and on August 9, 27 employees received scholarships.
“To the membership, thank you for participating in such a rewarding program for the employees,” said Bailey McCue, food and beverage operations employee and scholarship recipient. “I have loved every minute of getting to know the members here and will cherish the relationships and memories I have made with you all for the rest of my life.”
