The Shenandoah University School of Business hosted its third Legacy Golf Tournament to benefit the Shenandoah University School of Business Legacy Scholarship on Thursday, May 11, at the Winchester Country Club. More than 30 students, 90 sponsors and donors, and 29 teams participated in this year’s tournament, which netted a record-breaking $105,000 for the Legacy Scholarship.
Third-year business student David Munoz ’24 from Louisa, Virginia, was named as this year’s recipient of the Legacy Scholarship. Munoz, who is working toward a Bachelor of Business Administration degree with a concentration in sport management as well as a minor in public relations, is the first of five siblings in his family to pursue a college degree.
I want to thank the School of Business and the Legacy class for setting all this up, and to the Winchester Country Club and all of you for everything you all do. I can’t wait to give this back to the community.”

As the second recipient of the Legacy Scholarship, Munoz said the scholarship will help with tuition and will enable him to participate more fully in his field, volunteer with the Sports Business Association, expand his professional network and purchase a camera to achieve his sports marketing and communications goals.
The Legacy Scholarship, established in 2021, is perpetually funded by proceeds from the Legacy Golf Tournament as well as ongoing gifts provided by donors. It is awarded to high-achieving business students who have demonstrated financial need, with a preference for local, first-generation students. Legacy Scholarship recipients are selected by a committee of students, alumni, and past Legacy Golf Tournament participants.
Our mission is to build a legacy mindset, and our vision is to do it for future students and for this community. Leaving a legacy behind for others is hard work and takes effort that forces our students outside their comfort zones. They learn to understand expectations, learn how to meet them, contribute their part, and lift others along the way. This experience not only transforms their learning but engages them in leaving a legacy behind for others.”
