Sean Moore of Destrehan received a $5,000 scholarship for his excellence in both academics and community service.

Moore was awarded the BC Cup scholarship through the Kelly Gibson Junior Golf Tour, recognizing his strength as a student, citizen and athlete.


Moore, 17, attends Brother Martin High School in New Orleans and currently has a 4.2 grade point average. Moore will be a senior this coming fall and enjoys giving back to society through volunteer work. For the past two years, Moore has dedicated his time to helping both his school and his community.


As a sophomore, Moore was a Brother Martin Student Ambassador, assisting at several special events hosted by the school. In the past two years, Moore has volunteered over 80 hours of his time at the no-kill animal shelter Animal Rescue of New Orleans located in Jefferson Parish.  Moore has also volunteered at Ormond Nursing Home in Destrehan.  He found his experience with the senior residents very rewarding.


The BC Cup Foundation, Inc. was founded in memory of Barry Hogan and Colin Headrick, the deceased sons of PGA Golf Professionals and close friends Tim Hogan and Jimmy Headrick.


The Kelly Gibson Junior Golf Tour was founded in 2009 by PGA Tour Professional Kelly Gibson.  It is operated by Feed the Relief, Inc. with the mission of creating a positive learning experience through golf by providing competitive golf tournaments throughout the year. Scholarships are not awarded based on golfing ability.
