The UALR College of Business will host its second annual golf tournament at the Pleasant Valley Country Club on June 17.
The four-person scramble seeks to raise funds for a permanent endowment to support College of Business programs for students, including professional development workshops, placement activities, and student competitions such as the Microsoft Imagine Cup and the Donald W. Reynolds Governor’s Cup Business Plan.
