“I’m proud of the way you conducted yourselves and how you demonstrated the core values that we all try to exhibit every day. While the course and conditions were challenging, your perseverance and integrity were on point and I enjoyed sharing the day with you all. I am a strong believer of the “we help make better people” in our chapter. While golf is fun and important, the real goal is to help equip each of you with the tools to meet the challenges in the path of life. Your parents who support your golf and are the origin of your personal values deserve a heartfelt thank you from yourselves and from me, so please take a moment to put everything in perspective and thank them for being there for you.” said Jeffy Chang, Ambassador and Volunteer coach.
