    CORAL GABLES, Fla. (February 24, 2016) – Tee it up ’Canes! The Department of Wellness and Recreation (DWR) introduces the Inaugural Norman C. Parsons, Jr. Intramural Golf Tournament, open to members and non-members of the Herbert Wellness Center. The tournament, a two-person scramble, begins with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. on Friday, April 1 at the Miccosukee Golf and Country Club, with proceeds benefiting the DWR Student Employee Development Fund.

    The tournament honors the lasting impact Norm Parsons, the first executive director for the Department of Wellness and Recreation, had on the Herbert Wellness Center. For 43 years, Parsons served the University of Miami and the Division of Student Affairs with dedication, distinction, and a commitment to the health and well-being of students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

    “Norm was a strong advocate for all of our students,” said Tom Soria, assistant director of intramurals at the Herbert Wellness Center. “As the largest student employer on campus, we emphasize teaching our student employees useful and transferable skills. With this fund, we can now further support their personal and professional development.”

    The entry fee—$40 for UM students and $75 for all others—includes a cart, green fees, range balls, a boxed lunch, and a goodie bag. For more information or to register for the tournament by the March 18 deadline, visit
