Our March Growth & Development meeting featured the current Vice President of the PGA of America. Suzy Whaley is the first female Vice-President and soon to be President of the PGA of America. She shared stories about how she started in golf, what she’s experienced since being elected to Secretary and VP, and information about the future of the PGA. We thoroughly enjoyed her visit!
Alum, Kyle Earley, who works for GolfNOW, sponsored a tour of the Golf Channel Headquarters for our students attending the PGA Merchandise Show this year!

We’re looking to make this a yearly occurrence for our future students!
