Tori Mouton ’22 was one of 15 area students to be recognized as a 2022 recipient of a Jacksonville Area Golf Association Scholarship. The group was honored at a banquet on June 9 at Deerwood Country Club.
Each recipient will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship for each semester of the 2022-23 school year. Scholarships are renewable each semester based on scholars meeting certain criteria, including a minimum grade-point average, for up to eight semesters. Mouton will be attending North Carolina A&T State University, where she will be a member of the women’s golf team.
Applicants for scholarships must be children or grandchildren of a member of a JAGA member club or an employee of a member club who resides in JAGA’s Northeast Florida region. Each applicant is sponsored by a JAGA Director.
JAGA scholarship recipients have gone on to successful careers as golf course superintendents, golf club managers, PGA TOUR players, PGA golf professionals and other careers both inside and outside the golf industry.
