Ouachita Baptist University’s fifth annual FORE Ouachita Golf Tournament will tee off Monday, Sept. 16, at 8 a.m. with a second tee time at 1 p.m. at Pleasant Valley Country Club in Little Rock. Proceeds from the event will benefit scholarships for athletes at Ouachita.
“Each year it has been great to see alumni and friends of Ouachita gather for a fun day of golf, good food, old friends and competition,” said Nicole Herndon, an OBU development officer and coordinator of this year’s event.
With more than 400 Ouachita students involved in its growing NCAA Division II athletics program, Herndon said the main objective of the event is to raise money for scholarships and related athletic and academic financial expenses.
Brett Rogers, president of Capital Business Machines, Inc., serves as chairman for this year’s event. Rogers is a 1990 graduate of Ouachita and has served on the event planning committee each year since the event began.
“Ouachita is a small, private institution that does not receive funding like public institutions,” said Rogers. “Students who receive scholarships get a first rate education who otherwise might not have that opportunity.”
There are currently 34 teams registered for the event. Since its inception, the tournament has raised nearly $200,000 toward scholarships.
In addition to raising money, “it has also become a good networking tool for men and women who play in the tournament,” Herndon said. “The tournament provides a way to friend-raise as well as fund-raise.”
The lead sponsors for this year’s event include Capital Business Machines, Legacy Termite and Pest Control, Inc. and Bank of America/Merrill Lynch.

It is for a parents/student meeting. To inform new students about the program and what we offer. We would need from about 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Ouachita Baptist University Division of Music will host a faculty piano recital featuring Dr. Lei Cai, associate professor of music. This recital, which is free and open to the public, will be held Monday, Sept. 16, at 7:30 p.m. in Mabee Fine Arts Center’s McBeth Recital Hall.
This program, according to Cai, covers a variety of styles, and he said no piano experience is necessary for audience members to appreciate and enjoy the performance. The recital will include Schubert’s “Sonata in C minor” and Chopin’s “Ballade in F minor” as well as selected movements from Stravinsky’s “Petrouchka.” Cai will be assisted by his wife, Dr. Hee-Kyung Juhn, a piano professor at Henderson State University, on the piano for the final selection.
“As a piano professor, we want to perform as a part of our professional career, so I want to keep that part alive,” Cai said. “We want to try to inspire our students; if they see their teachers performing, it probably will give them some encouragement or inspiration.”
Cai began playing piano at age 5. He said music has “always been an important part of my life, and it’s very natural to want to share music with an audience.”
Cai, who has taught at Ouachita since 2001, earned his Master of Music degree from the University of Tennessee and his Doctor of Music degree from Florida State University. He has work with the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra on recordings and has recorded for Radio Shanghai.
