One local school district is teeing off to positively impact lives. Anniston City Schools will host a kick off for The First Tee Elementary School Program. The First Tee is a national organization whose mission is to positively impact the lives of young people through playing golf.
The First Tee provides educational programs for youth that help build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.
Anniston Parks and Recreations Director Steven Folks says while being active is important it’s all about the children.
In October 2017, the Anniston Police Department hosted a golf tournament to raise funds toward the implementation of the First Tee program. The police department raised more than $3,700.
