I can not thank The First Academy enough for all it has done for me. My golf coaches, Coach Kowars and Coach Combs, have been an important influence in my life, believing in my ability since the seventh grade. They saw talent and gave me a chance on the Varsity team. Years later, we made it to states, where we came in second as a team, and I won individual honors. This victory was not for me, but for the team. If they had not poured their enthusiasm into me, it never would have happened. This school has shaped me into the young man I am today.”
