Thomas More Prep-Marian has renamed its annual alumni golf tournament the Father Earl Befort Golf Classic.
“Fr. Earl has been a chaplain, teacher, administrator, golf coach and prestigious alum for 50 years at TMP-M,” the school said on its website. “His history and dedication to the school will forever reign over the golf tournament that now bears his name. ”
In addition, the school also announced that TMP-M will gain Fr. Ryan McCandless from St. Isidore Catholic Student Center, as an additional Chaplain and Canonical Designate of TMP-Marian for the Salina Diocese.
Fr. Ryan will fill the spiritual role previously held by Rev. Msgr. Barry Brinkman and will work alongside Fr. Earl. Fr. Barry’s administrative duties for TMP-M will be filled by Dr. Nick Compagnone, superintendent.
“We are pleased to announce these new additions at TMP-M and invite all to join us in celebrating Fr. Earl and welcoming Fr. Ryan to TMP-Marian.”
