Written in 2008 when awarded the Acta Non Verba Award
Heidmar Inc., which is the proud National Title Sponsor of the Blue & Gray Golf Classics, is the first corporation to receive the Acta Non Verba Award. Since its inception in 1994 by the officers of the Blue & Gray Club, the Acta Non Verba Award is the highest honor presented by the USMMA Department of Athletics. The achievement honors an individual or organization who has gone far beyond expectations in supporting Kings Point Athletics.
Through the efforts of former owner Per Heidenriech, and current President/CEO Tim Brennan ’87 and Director of Operation Control Captain John Hill ’67, Heidmar was one of the first corporate sponsors of the Blue & Gray Golf Classics, which are national golf tournaments that benefit the USMMA Athletics Department. Heidmar was the Gift Sponsor from 2001-2002 and increased its financial and promotional commitment by becoming the National Title Sponsor in 2002. Heidmar enhanced its partnership again by extending its title sponsorship to at least the year 2010.
“The Department of Athletics is truly appreciative of Heidmar’s long term commitment to the Blue & Gray Golf Classics,” said Susan Petersen Lubow, USMMA Director of Athletics. “Heidmar’s presence and endorsements have taken the golf outings to a new level attracting more and more participants. Thanks to Heidmar’s generosity and the success of the Blue & Gray Golf Classics, we are continually able to enhance our athletic department and remain competitive at the national level.”
Heidmar is the first corporation to receive the Acta Non Verba Award, the highest honor awarded by the USMMA Athletics Department. The organization is the proud title sponsor of the Blue & Gray Golf Classics and currently employs eight Kings Pointers.
