Andrea Pickford awarded Evans Scholarship!
The scholarship program wouldn’t be as successful as it is without the support of the CGA, CWGA and thousands of generous donors throughout Colorado. And it wouldn’t have been possible without the leadership and support of The First Tee program at Green Valley Ranch since this program is what brought Andrea to the game of golf in the first place. Being in The First Tee opened the door for her to start playing golf and caddying. Now she is a varsity golfer at East High School and one of the first two African American girls to receive the Evans Scholarship to CU (the other being Asni Solomon from CommonGround Golf Course)!
Thanks to all of you as Andrea’s success will be a shot in the arm in getting more of our First Tee kids to caddie and apply for the scholarship that over 400 Colorado caddies since the late 1960s credit for changing their lives and opening doors that would not have otherwise opened.
