Nick Hookham Rhet Comp 2 4/8/08 The Longest Walk to School “Where do you live again?” It’s a question that comes up quite often when meeting new people on a college campus, and one that I have come to grow sick and tired of. While I am not by any means ashamed of being an Evans Scholar or living in the Evans house, nor am I tired of having to explain the whole history of the scholarship almost every time I meet someone new. What I am tired of rather is that all too often the response of others when they hear that I have a full ride scholarship is along the lines of “what did you do to disserve that, you’re just a caddy.” For those of you that don’t know, the Evans Scholarship was started by Chick Evans in 1930. Chick was a caddy who began to compete in professional golf tournaments while wanting to maintain an amateur status and thus put all of his winnings away in a trust fund until his mother suggested starting a scholarship. To date more than 8,500 caddies have gone to college because of the scholarship and it is the single largest privately funded scholarship in the country.
