Jim Kane Scholarship

In honor of long standing Board Member Jim Kane, an annual scholarship has been set up to award to up to 3 outstanding High School Senior Participants actively involved with First Tee – Coachella Valley, all of whom demonstrate the Leadership Skills they have learned in the program.

Before Jim passed away, he stated, “What an incredible honor for (initial donor to the scholarship) Diane Moss to support First Tee kids in this way. I’m excited to invest in the future of young graduates of our golf and educational programs who have demonstrated the Nine Core Values and have personal goals that translate into becoming great American citizens.”

As a 1960 graduate of West Point, what rang most true to Jim about First Tee is the character education that reminded him so much of “Duty, Honor and Country,” the motto of the military academy.

His lasting goal with this scholarship is to recognize students who have demonstrated leadership skills and will continue to show leadership in their working lives and involvement with local communities.
