Trevor Frederickson graduated from Atlantic High School in 2006.  He went on to further his education at Southwestern Community College (SWCC) in Creston, where he studied automotive mechanics and played baseball for the Southwestern Spartans.  Because of his affiliation with SWCC, two additional $750 scholarships will be available for students planning on attending the school in the Fall of 2013.

Funds for the scholarships are raised at an annual golf tournament.  Plans are already in the works for the 5th Annual T-Fred Memorial Golf Tournament to be held on Saturday, August 10th, 2013.  Organizers look forward to another successful tournament so they can continue to grant scholarships for many years to come.
