Golf Memorial Scholarship Awarded
The 2017 Gubbi Sachidanandan Memorial Scholarship was awarded to two student athletes from Eau Gallie High School. Cade Oas and Kadence Jonelis, both members of the Eau Gallie High School golf team, were receipts of this year’s award. The scholarship honors the memory of Gubbi “Sachi” Sachidanandan, who passed away in 2015. Sachi was a long-standing member of the City of Melbourne Golf Course Advisory Board and was dedicated and passionate about the development of the city's two golf courses. Gubbi Sachidanandan’s daughter, Sushila Gezik, presented Cade and Kadence with a scholarship for a complimentary Junior Golf Membership that can be used at both Play Melbourne golf locations. “It was a rewarding and emotional moment for me,” said Gezik.” The students were recognized at Mallards Landing Golf Course on May 16.
