The 4th Annual Lou Mitchell Memorial Golf Outing
Twenty-three teams enjoyed a beautiful day of golf at the 4th Annual Lou Mitchell Memorial Golf Outing at Moundbuilders Country Club on July 25, 2016. During dinner on the patio, the group learned about the Suicide Prevention program from MHALC’s Executive Director Penny Sitler and Suicide Prevention Program Coordinator Justina Wade. This year’s Event Ambassador and Newark High School Counselor Scott Koebel shared the critical need for prevention programs in our schools. State Representative Scott Ryan, who played in this year’s event, also spoke about the need for changes and the work being done in the mental health arena at the state level. Lou Mitchell’s son David represented the rest of his family, thanking everyone for their support of this important event and the issue of suicide prevention. He also expressed how much his dad had loved Licking County, which is evident in all the great work Lou did to make it a wonderful place to live, work and play.
