Colorado Section Honors Veteran While Receiving 2018 Herb Graffis Award

11/8/2018

On Thursday, November 8, the Colorado Section was awarded the Herb Graffis Award. This award is presented to a PGA of America Section that exhibits extraordinary and exemplary contributions and achievements in the area of Player Development. This award considers initiatives conducted by the Section, involvement of members in Section and National Growth of the Game Programs, and overall impact on growth of the game.

 

What a proud day for the Colorado PGA and Colorado PGA REACH when all of our efforts were showcased in front of the entire leadership of the PGA of America. The presentation started with this video, which set the stage for our Honorary President Ty Thompson to accept this award on behalf of the Colorado Section. 

 

 

During his acceptance speech, Ty did an outstanding job of highlighting many of the individuals who personally contributed to making things happen here in Colorado. He then rolled right into our partnership with the Military Warriors Support Foundation and proceeded to present the keys to a Mortgage Free Home to Retired Army Specialist David Beck and his wife Heidi!!! After a thunderous standing ovation for Specialist Beck and his wife, the positive comments have not stopped coming in.
