IJGA Students Spend Weekend Volunteering

Several International Junior Golf Academy students took advantage of a tournament-free weekend by volunteering at the Programs for Exceptional People fall gala at Sea Pines Country Club and the Special Olympics North America Golf Invitational at Port Royal Golf Club.

The students who volunteered at the gala–including Shiso Go, Linda Trockel, Dee Johnson, Aniruddh Kedlaya, Santiago Diaz, Jim Ji, Angela Aung, Kayla Kozak, Saptak Talwar, Alex Guillen, Meredith Langs and Jasmine Chee–were tasked with running the silent auction, which raised money for Programs for Exceptional People.
