Frank F. Kowski

Frank F. Kowski Memorial Golf Tournament

Frank F. Kowski served in the National Park Service from 1937 until his retirement in 1974. He was a longtime director of the Albright Training Center, and later, the director of the Southwest Region. Frank loved golf, and after his untimely passing in 1975, his friends organized this golf tournament in his memory. It has been played annually ever since on a date as close to August 25th Founders Day as is practicable.

The proceeds from the tournament benefit the George B. Hartzog, Jr. Education Loan Program. Over the years, the George B. Hartzog, Jr. Education Loan Program has assisted over 350 E&AA members to finance higher education for their dependants. Currently, the E&AA Trust Fund has approximately 150 active member loans outstanding. Over the last 10 years, Kowski Tournaments have contributed in excess of $50,000 to the educational assistance program.

In 2013 The National Park Service Employees and Alumni Trust Fund has been the beneficiary of recently completed Frank F. Kowski Golf Tournaments sponsored by the Midwest Region in Omaha; the Northwest Region in Seattle; the Intermountain Region in Colorado and Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The Employees and Alumni Association of the National Park Service greatly appreciates the support of all who participated in these events.
