Scott Strong believed that the business community had the opportunity to share their resources and provide Lake County students with the edge in public education. In 2004, his vision resulted in the founding of the Education Foundation Golf Tournament. The tournament has since been renamed in his memory and has raised over a million dollars. These funds help maintain essential educational programs, award grants for innovative teaching practices, and provide scholarships to local students.
