Matthew Richardson, Advancement VP at Brigham Young University (BYU), is teeing off with the Chattanooga Chapter Alumni Association at the 20th annual Golf Tournament.  The event will be held on Tuesday, at the Windstone Golf Club. 

 

Funds from the tournament provide tuition support to young adults attending BYU and BYU-Idaho.  In 2018-2019, the Chattanooga Alumni Chapter gave more than $45,000 in half-tuition grants to 32 young adults.  Over the past 20 years, the Chattanooga Chapter has raised over $600,000 for students.  Additional funds are needed to give more applicants grants, and the Chattanooga BYU Chapter invites all – individuals and corporations – to sponsor.  

 

Organizers said, "The Chattanooga Chapter is especially proud to have VP Richardson join this year’s event."  In addition to his administrative duties, Mr.

Richardson oversees Athletics, BYU Broadcasting, University Communications, Alumni, External Relations, and Philanthropies. Prior to his current position, Mr. Richardson was serving as the second counselor in the Sunday School General Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and as a professor of Church History and Doctrine at Brigham Young University.  After serving a full-time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ in Copenhagen, Denmark, Mr. Richardson completed his bachelor’s, master's, and doctoral degrees at BYU.  He also has served in various callings and assignments for the Church and is currently serving as a Stake President, or regional leader. Mr. Richardson met his wife, Lisa, while they were students at BYU. They are parents of four children and six grandchildren.

 

On Monday, Mr. Richardson will be on sport talk radio around 5:50 p.m. on 102.3 FM.  On Wednesday, he will speak at noon at the Chattanooga Hamilton Place Rotary Club.
