eLeader of the month, Wynne Aldrich, has been a member of Girl Golf of Valparaiso since she was just 6 years-old. Now, at age 13, Wynne is enthusiastic about having the opportunity to give back to her local chapter!
Wynne is very active as an eLeader, having volunteered 9 hours since the program launched. She loves teaching the girls and has helped at every event so far this year!
“What I like most about being an eLeader is helping out the younger girls and seeing their skills progress each and every time,” Wynne said. “Right now I am interested in becoming an elementary [school] teacher, I love working with younger children, and think I can make a difference in their lives.”
Whether teaching golf or just having fun, Wynne’s contributions have enriched the lives of the girls.
“My favorite event so far was the St. Patrick’s Day Photo Booth. The girls really got into getting dressed up and acting goofy!!” Wynne said.
Wynne’s passion for teaching young girls is matched only by her passion for golf. She has had great success playing in golf tournaments, and loves to compete! Wynne recently took home 7th place in a tournament of 156 girls, and was the youngest to finish in the top 10. She also won the Drive, Chip, and Putt qualifier at the Moors Golf Club in Portage, MI just last week!
As a 7-year member of Girls Golf, Wynne plans to take her game to the next level. She will bring her excellent leadership and golf skills to the Valparaiso High School golf team this fall, and she won’t be stopping there.
“One of my major goals for in the future is to play college golf,” said Wynne.
We are certain that Wynne’s advanced skills in leadership and golf will lead her to achieve this goal and many more!
From LPGA*USGA Girls Golf headquarters, congratulations to you, Wynne! Thank you for all that you do! And keep up the good work!
In February 2016, LPGA*USGA Girls Golf started the eLeader program, a new national volunteer and mentorship opportunity for Girls Golf members, ages 13 – 17, looking for ways to give back to their local site. In addition to making a difference in their community, they build professional and leadership skills that will help prepare them for life beyond high school.
