John R. Graham Memorial Golf Classic
This year's tournament will be held on Saturday, April 27 at the Manhattan Country Club.
The John R. Graham Memorial Golf Classic brings together friends of Dr. John Graham to celebrate John's love of life and share in his love of golf with the purpose of enhancing John's rich legacy of giving in establishing the John R. Graham Business Scholarship for business majors at Kansas State University.
Dr. John R. Graham was a beloved College of Business Administration teacher, mentor and colleague. He graduated from Great Bend High School in 1963 and Kansas State University in 1967 with a degree in accounting.
Graham's academic career eventually led to his position as CEO and executive vice president of the Kansas Farm Bureau in 1979 where he remained until his retirement in 1999. His love for teaching and innovative thinking as a business professional was contagious. His legacy will continue through the John R. Graham Golf Classic.
