FUND AWARDS FIRST FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE GIFT
July 7, 2015
The JTR Suitcase Fund announced the award of its first gift in support of junior golfers in the West Texas area on July 7th.
The award was given to a young high school golfer from Lubbock, Texas.
"I am so pleased to pass along the good fortune I had as a junior golfer. It doesn't always take a lot to open doors for young golfers and we never know where it may take them. To help young golfers continue to grow and perhaps become better people in life through golf is what it's about." said Judy.
We are very pleased to announce that Destiny Arenas has accepted a partial scholarship to play golf at Texas Tech University for the 2018-2019 school year.
Those of us who know and support her could not be happier!
Walter Rankin Jr.
