Jonathan Roe Selected to the First Tee Game Changer’s Academy

We at First Tee – Upstate South Carolina would like to congratulate our own Jonathan Roe for being selected to the 2022 First Tee Game Changer’s Academy in Philadelphia, PA! Jonathan is one of 72 participants being invited to attend the 2022 First Tee Game Changer’s Academy.

Jonathan has been a First Tee participant for 10 years and was our 2021 Male Participant of the Year. He has been a veteran participant of First Tee within our chapter taking classes at Woodfin Ridge. Jonathan sang the National Anthem for us on First Tee Night at Fluor Field at the Greenville Drive game in the Summer of 2021. He also attended our Winter Workshop and plays for Boiling Springs High School JV golf team. Below is a video for a story WSPA did on Jonathan!

The First Tee Game Changer’s Academy received 115 applications this year and selected 72 participants to attend. The 72 participants were chosen based on their activities chart, letters of recommendation, their essay, and a chapter participation survey. The program will be centered around conversations and workshops on identity, racism, diversity, equity, and inclusion. 

Once again, congratulations to Jonathan and to all who were selected! To learn more about the First Tee Game Changer’s Academy, click on the link below.
