The First Tee of Virginia provides education and life skills through the game of golf. James Melton is one of only 52 individuals that was chosen and selected by the Goochland chapter of the organization for a recent honor. James will travel to Florida to study the game under Hank Haney. Hank is the foremost golf swing teacher in the nation, having personally coached Tiger Woods – and now, our very own James Melton!
James just graduated from GHS with the class of 2013 and we are proud of his scholarship and his pursuit of excellence on and off the golf course.
We look forward to recognizing him in an upcoming school board meeting. Please join me in congratulating James and his parents, Lisa Melton, teacher at Goochland Middle School, and James Melton, Jr., former chairperson of the Goochland County Planning Commission.
