Several Grand County High School organizations got a major financial boost this week.

The second annual Terry Page Memorial Golf Tournament donated a total of $12,000 to Grand County High School activities. The football and volleyball team each received $4,000 as originally planned. The tournament ended up raising even more money than expected, so the remaining $4,000 was split evenly between the cheer squad and the marching band.

The charity tournament began in 2017 as a tribute to the late Terry Page. He was a coach of the high school girls softball team and was known as a strong supporter of Grand County’s youth, sports and activities.

Tournament organizers said, “The success of this tournament is due to the generous support of many of our local businesses and golfers.” They added that several out-of-town businesses and golfers also participated. Many of the participants were friends of Page or alumni of GCHS. Two of Page’s sons, T.C. and Colt Page, presented the checks to the coaches and advisors. Before its first home game on Aug. 28, the volleyball team was presented its donation. Connor Guerrero, a senior at GCHS, and Hannah Tuft, a sophomore, are both Page’s grandchildren and they made the formal announcement.
