Third Annual Golf tournament to benefit Jim Hoots Scholarship
Family, friends, colleagues, students, former athletes and Affton alumni meet every year to celebrate and honor Jim Hoots, a great man, and one who made a difference in their lives. Jim was an outstanding athlete and proud ‘67 graduate of Affton High School. He attended Missouri Southern State University on a full athletic scholarship, and went on to teach Physical Education at Affton High School, St. Louis Country Day, John Burroughs and The Community School… a total of 38 years. Jim was a very caring, giving and loving man who dedicated himself to the the lives of thousands of students and athletes. Known as the “Gentle Giant,” he not only had a profound impact on students, but on the lives of all he touched. He was loved by all who knew him. The Jim Hoots Memorial Scholarship was established after Jim’s sudden passing in October of 2013.
Each year it is awarded to a deserving senior athlete graduating from Affton High School. The scholarship is designed to help pay for college tuition, books and supplemental expenses, and is managed by the Affton Education Foundation. In addition to the generosity of many donors, the scholarship is funded through an annual golf tournament and dinner/auction held in Jim’s honor. Last year, 250 guests attended this event. We hope you’ll join us in making this year’s event an even greater success!
