Chapter student Trevor Tarashuk received the inaugural Erling Speer Memorial College Scholarship. He is the first student from our chapter to benefit from our annual scholarship fund.

Erling (pictured above right) was an instrumental chapter Director and helped launch our Chapter in 2012. His relationships with other youth serving organizations, especially the Boys and Girls Clubs, were key factors in our chapter’s early growth and today’s continued success.

The Palm Beach Gardens PGA TOUR Superstore hosted our annual scholarship award ceremony. Seven-chapter students celebrated their scholarship awards with parents, friends, coaches, staff and board members.

Because of the generosity of the Andrew and Robin Hunt Charitable Fund, Trustee Jon Orszag and the Peter G. Helie Family Scholarship, our chapter awarded a record $34,000 in scholarships to these deserving students.
