Homer K. Ball, a Lerona native, graduated from Concord in 1948. Throughout his career he served as the Mercer County sheriff, a West Virginia state senator and Director of the Physical Plant at Concord University. Ball was also an avid golfer. In 1991, the annual golf tournament benefitting Concord University students was named in his honor. After Ball's passing in 2008, the tournament was renamed the Homer K. Ball Memorial Golf Tournament.
Proceeds from the tournament are used to fund retention scholarships for Concord University students. In the last 12 years, more than $200,000 has been raised and nearly 400 scholarships have been awarded.
