Mini-Golf Fun Coming To HBW

By on May 23, 2019

These were some of the challenges at the last Maker Mini-Golf.

While the Verona High School golf team once again had a fabulous season (they are back-to-back state sectional champions), most of us will only be mini-golf stars. Next weekend, you can improve your short game, have fun, and support education in Verona at Maker Mini-Golf.

Maker Mini-Golf is the work of H.B. Whitehorne’s seventh grade technology education and design class as part of their Rube Goldberg Maker Mini-Golf Challenge. The course, which will include at least a dozen holes, will be laid out on the town square lawn in front of HBW on Saturday, June 1 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (If the weather doesn’t cooperate, the fun will be moved into HBW’s gym.)

It will cost just $5 per person to play, which will go to support the Verona Foundation for Educational Excellence (VFEE). The French Quarter food truck will be on hand, as will the Kona Ice truck.

“We’re trying to make it a showcase for the creativity and innovative spirit of Verona’s students,” says Nick Klose, VFEE’s chairman. VFEE funded the materials bring used by the seventh graders to create the course.

VFEE is a Verona-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that solicits donations to fund a comprehensive grant program designed to enhance the educational experiences of Verona’s public school children. District faculty and staff can apply for one of the five core grants to obtain resources to expand, enhance and enrich the classroom learning experience. VFEE also funds major projects that enable a school, a department, or team access to larger cash awards to further enhance a particular educational initiative. Over the years, VFEE has funded the leasing of a large number of Google Chromebooks, hands-on science programs and a science resource database, and learning tools for special needs students that were designed by students at H.B. Whitehorne. VFEE honors educators at each of Verona’s schools every year through its “Inspiring Excellence” awards.
