    REDLANDS, CA, January 24, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Melodie Scott is a proud graduate of the University of Redlands. She is incredibly proud of all of the hard work she did while at the university. She was an extraordinarily dedicated student who made sure to work hard in all of her classes. She took extensive notes during the lectures and made sure that she did all of her homework. She would even make sure to review her notes after she was through with her homework.

With all of the hard work she did, Melodie Scott knows that she still would not have been as successful in life were it not for the amazing staff and faculty members at the University of Redlands. She wanted to give something back to the University, something more than just the personal donations she was giving them. It was for this reason that she decided to become the president of the Alumni Athletes Associates from the years 1996 to 1999. It was during this time that she helped to create the most successful athletic fundraiser in all of the years that the University of Redlands has been in operation. This is what she is celebrating today.

It all began in 1971, when two former students and the current Athletic Director created the University of Redlands Bulldog Bench. Ted Runner, the director, and "Bunny" Gillette and Clay Brooks, the former students, helped to put together the first athletic fundraiser for the school. Joe Cortez also assisted along with Bob Rosenberger, the first president of the newly organized group. For over 40 years, this organization helped to support the athletic students of the University of Redlands.

When Melodie Scott wished to help her beloved school, she decided to expand the Bulldog Bench by creating a special golf tournament. Today, the golf tournament has become the most successful athletic fundraiser that the school has ever seen. It now takes up the majority of the organization's time and resources, but it is for good reason. The Bulldog Bench Golf Tournament gathers yearly sponsors from all around the area, including car dealerships, printing companies, construction companies, hotels, and more. Together, they help the tournament that Melodie Scott created earn around $35,000 a year.

About: Melodie Scott has a long history of helping establish fund raising programs, and one of her most meaningful ones was the Bulldog Bench Golf Tournament for her alma mater, the University of Redlands.
