On behalf of the Kenneth Huffman Memorial Tennis Foundation and the Appalachian Tennis Series (ATS), I want to extend our thanks to the City of Prestonsburg for the use of its tennis courts at Archer Park July 12-14 for the UPS/Prestonsburg Open Tennis Tournament. We were very encouraged by the size of the field, and we are hopeful that this can become an annual event. All profits derived from the tournament will be used by the Foundation to assist in providing monetary scholarships for graduating seniors from the 14th and 15th regions.
Also, I want to give special recognition to Mr. Richie Schoolcraft and the parks and recreation staff for their outstanding efforts in placing the park and the courts in excellent condition. We had entrants from several counties as well as from the states of Tennessee and Virginia who were very impressed with the facilities, and I attribute that to the hard work and dedication of Mr. Schoolcraft and his personnel.
