While WUSM strives to play the best music ever recorded, they also pride themselves on being a strong community partner.  Their mission states, “It is both the mission and a legal responsibility of WUSM – FM 88.5 to serve its community.  The Station was established to facilitate, support and enhance the University’s mission of teaching, training and service.  It was also designed to support the activities and programs within the University, local non-profits and the needs of its listeners, volunteers, supporters, sponsors and underwriters.  It is a Public Radio Station, whose design is to engage and include students in all areas of station operations.”
 
The golf tournament, brought to you by American Graphics and the Forrest County Board of Supervisors gives those involved at the station the opportunity to spend the day with the people who make a difference by sponsoring, playing, or volunteering at the event.
