Concord College Notes: In 1991 the Concord College Foundation recognized Homer K. Ball by adding his name to the golf tournament’s title. Homer is a 1948 Concord graduate, former sheriff of Mercer County, and retired director of the physical plant at Concord–as well as an avid golfer. He currently serves as a West Virginia State Senator, representing the 10th district. When not volunteering for Habitat for Humanity or his church, you’re likely to find him on the Pipestem course.
