The board of directors for the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament donates $100,000 to Carteret Community College.
The contribution is made to celebrate Carteret Community College's 50th anniversary.
Big Rock leaders praise the school's Marine Training and Education Center and say they hope the donation will help the program "reach new heights."
A portion of the money will also go toward the Big Rock Student of the Year scholarship.
The Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament takes place every year in Morehead City.
