Recently the Samaritan Center for Boys hosted their awards dinner.  Our Chapter partners with the center and all of the boys there participate in our Life Skills programs at Mariner Sands.

The house parents evaluated all the boys use of our Nine Core Values and awarded Emil Gurklis as the top student that demonstrated our Life Skills on the golf course and at home and greatly improved his golf skills this year.   Emil was presented with the Golfer of the Year Award!

Also, Birdie Participant Brooklyn Pimpo was recognized this year at Fort Pierce Central High School as their Athlete of the Year for Golf. Brooklyn will be a sophomore at Central this year.

Congratulations to both Brooklyn and Emil!
