Doug White Memorial Golf Outing in Support of Concord Carlisle Scholarship Fund



Lucy Miller, chair of the CCSF Board of Trustees, and Sarah Milofsky, 2014 Doug White Scholarship recipient, spoke on behalf of the Concord Carlisle Scholarship Fund during the Golf Outing’s evening program.


On October 9, 2015, the 8th Doug White Memorial Golf Outing was held at the Concord Country Club. Initiated in the fall of 2007 after the sudden death of Concord native Doug White, close friends come together annually to spend a day of golf and camaraderie in Doug's memory, knowing it would have been a day he would have loved. The Golf Outing also raises funds for the Doug White Memorial Scholarship administered by the Concord Carlisle Scholarship Fund (CCSF). Each spring, a $3,000 scholarship is awarded to a CCHS graduating senior girl and boy whose Concord-Carlisle High School experiences reflect the spirit of Doug's reputation of quietly "getting things done" without expectation of recognition.

Lucy Miller, chair of the CCSF Board of Trustees, spoke on behalf of the organization during the event’s program. Miller impressed upon the attendees the importance of their contributions to the need-based assistance provided from the Doug White Memorial Scholarship to youth of the Concord and Carlisle communities heading to college in these financially challenging times.


Sarah Milofsky, 2014 Doug White Memorial Scholarship recipient, returned for the event from her sophomore year at the University of New Hampshire to express her thanks for the scholarship and to reminisce about her connection to Doug. Sarah was deeply involved in the Concord ice hockey community, and Doug was one of their most avid fans.  She remembered Doug as always giving supportive words of congratulations to the team, making them feel good about their efforts, no matter the outcome of the game.  Sarah also spoke of how important the financial assistance is to her ability to pursue her academic goals, and that receiving the Doug White Memorial Scholarship recommitted her to emulating Doug’s lifelong commitment to community.
