Annual Bayou Bend Golf Classic raises funds for West Tally

Members of the golf and football teams at West Tallahatchie High School participated in the annual Bayou Bend Golf Classic on Saturday, Nov. 2, at the Bayou Bend golf course in Sumner. 

The students of West Tallahatchie High School benefit from the proceeds, which are used to support academics and athletics.

Some of this year’s supporters included attorney Bill Luckett of Luckett Law Offices, warden Martin Frink of the Tallahatchie County Correctional Facility and Mayor Tracy Mims of Webb. The tournament is supported annually by Sykes and Walker Sturdivant, among others.
