I was proud to participate in this year's OV Cup, which had a record number of golfers. And I was extremely surprised and humbled to be recognized, along with former Councilmember Mary Snider, with the implementation of the Founders Cup Award. Twenty years ago, the idea for launching Project Grad came to fruition when Mary and I met in my office at the Oro Valley Police Department. Project Grad is a program that focuses on graduating seniors having a fun and safe event, held at the school all night long, and I'm proud to say that since the program's inception, we have not had a single incident related to graduation nights.
A hearty thank you to Jim Miller (pictured here) for helping make it such a fun and successful event. We are already looking forward to next year's Cup, which will be the last under Jim Miller's leadership, and celebrating all his accomplishments and his incredible dedication to our OV youth. And a huge thank you to everyone else who participated and helped make it such a special day, for all of your hard work and efforts, and for your part in making the OV Cup the largest fundraiser for our community's Project Grad.
