LINDSBORG — Bethany College golfers Olly Rubenstein and Josef Loughlin, who have come across the pond to play for the team, have been chosen as the recipients of the fourth annual Carmichael Golf Scholarship from Dorothy Carmichael, in memory of her late husband Ken.

"Olly and Josef are worthy recipients of the Carmichael Golf Scholarship,” Bethany College Dean of Athletics Dane Pavlovich said. "They are good students and perform well on the course. We are thankful to Dorothy Carmichael for creating the scholarship to assist members of our golf team to attend Bethany College."

Dorothy Carmichael, a Bethany alum of the Class of 1961, created the scholarship in memory of her husband Ken. Ken, also Class of 1961, was a retired Lutheran minister and an avid golfer who was a member of the first-ever men's golf team at Bethany College. 

Dorothy's daughter and son-in-law, Suzanne and Randy Butsch, who reside in Florida, are also Bethany alums — Randy the Class of 1982, and Suzanne the Class of 1983. Dorothy's son Scott Carmichael, of Denver, Colo., attended Bethany for one year.

Rubenstein is an upcoming junior from Sheffield, England. He is the son of Barry and Karen Rubenstein, and is majoring in health and wellness.

Loughlin is an upcoming junior from Manchester, England. He is the son of Sean and Helen Loughlin, and is majoring in sports management.
