PEPSI-COLA ANNOUNCES TITLE SPONSORSHIP OF MINORITY COLLEGE GOLF TOURNAMENT

 PEPSI-COLA ANNOUNCES TITLE SPONSORSHIP OF
 MINORITY COLLEGE GOLF TOURNAMENT
 Pepsi-Cola Central is the new title sponsor of the National Minority College Golf Championship Tournament, which will hold its sixth annual tournament on May 18-19, at Highland Park Golf Course in Cleveland. The tournament is the only sports event in the U.S.A. where historically black colleges compete for a national title. This fund raising event is administered by the National Minority College Golf Scholarship Fund and dollars generated each year directly benefit the participating players and schools.
 According to Willie Eason, Urban Market Manager, Pepsi-Cola Central, the tournament is a good fit with Pepsi's corporate commitment to youth and education. The fact that the tournament brings national attention to Cleveland, where Eason is based, was also an important factor in the company's decision to become title sponsor of the event.
 College teams competing in this year's tournament include: Alabama State University; Alcorn State University; Fayetteville State University; Florida A & M University; Grambling State University; Hampton University; Jackson State University (1991 tournament winner); Johnson C. Smith University; Kentucky State University; Mississippi Valley State University; Prairie View A & M University; St. Augustine's College; South Carolina State College; Southern University; Tennessee State University; and Virginia Union University.
 The National Minority College Golf Scholarship Fund is a nonprofit Ohio Corporation.
 CONTACT: Michelle Jackson, 216-987-3096 or 216-283-8628, after hours; or Dr. James Robinson, 216-446-0422, both for the National Minority College Golf Scholarship Fund.
