The First Tee home office and Trustee Jim Crane recently hosted a Trustee outing at Floridian National. The event brought together a small group of existing Trustees and new Trustee candidates. Chapter Director, Ken Ohrstrom, confirmed his acceptance of becoming our newest Trustee. Chapter participant, Frances Melendez, was asked to attend the opening dinner and speak to the group about how our Life Skills program and the Chapter has helped her in school and life.
