Our 5th stop in our Disc Golf Pro Tour Community Connect Series brings us to Dr. Lewis D. Stallworth Sr. Charter school, a K-8th grade school located 8 miles away from Swenson Park Golf Course, where the OTB Open was held.
School VP, Michelle McKormick, reached out to Uplay hopeful to be considered for the Community Connect program being a disc golf enthusiast herself and very hopeful to provide a unique and special opportunity for her students. The school had never experienced hosting any professional guest instructors before and reported having fewer opportunities for their students due to funding and location.
Uplay staff Zoe AnDyke, Dustin Keegan, and Ella Hansen presented and were joined by returning Pro Ambassador James Conrad, and new Ambassadors Kat Mertsch and Nikko Locastro. Another outstanding day to report a 100% student participation rate throughout every class, totaling 194 students and 7 more teachers.
This brings our grand total for the 2022 DGPT Community Connect events up to 1,574 students, 31 teachers and staff members, and 1,337 of those students opted to take a free disc home! Please take a few moments to celebrate being a crucial part of making that all happen!
We are so thankful for the support of our partners. Please, consider supporting these amazing companies who support us and the growth of disc golf. Thank you Upper Park Disc Golf, UDisc, Discmania, Trash Panda, and Disc Dots.
