All of us on the Board of Trustees¬†have been thrilled with the great¬†partnership between Georgetown College¬†and The First Tee organization. We take¬†great pride in how Georgetown got the¬†scholarship program going more than ten¬†years ago, and how it‚Äôs now grown to¬†include so many other colleges and¬†universities across the country. We take¬†even greater pride in the Scholars¬†themselves. These young men and women¬†have used their experience at Georgetown¬†College as a springboard to success.
Earle Goode, Board Chair, Georgetown College
The legacy of The First Tee¬†Scholars Program at Georgetown¬†College is phenomenal. It was the¬†program that started it all for us,¬†and it‚Äôs now grown to some twenty¬†other colleges and universities¬†across the country. All of us at¬†First Tee are especially proud of¬†how the students at Georgetown¬†have gone on to such success after¬†graduation. That‚Äôs exactly what¬†we had in mind when we¬†formed the partnership, and it¬†inspires us to keep trying to¬†make it bigger and better.
Joe Barrow, CEO, The First Tee
The PGA TOUR is appreciative¬†of the strong partnership that has¬†grown over the years between The¬†First Tee and Georgetown College.¬†We are delighted that participants¬†in the program have capitalized on¬†the experience to get off to a great¬†start in their careers. It‚Äôs especially¬†pleasing to us to see several of the¬†Georgetown graduates go to work¬†in the golf industry. The sport needs¬†a pipeline of young talent, and this¬†program is helping deliver great¬†prospects. Thank you to Georgetown¬†College and The First Tee for a¬†decade of outstanding success.
Tim Finchem, President, PGA Tour
When we started this program, we thought we were doing a favor for¬†these Scholars. But we‚Äôve come to find out they have done us a much¬†bigger favor. All of us at the college have been been inspired by their¬†talent for academics, for golf, and especially for leadership. They truly¬†exemplify the three ways we describe what we‚Äôre about at Georgetown¬†College: To Live, Learn, and Believe.
