Bush to be honorary chair of First Tee
Former President George W. Bush is following after his father
again, this time as the honorary chair of The First Tee
His father, former President George H.W. Bush, had been the
honorary chair since the creation of The First Tee in 1997. He will
now move to an emeritus role.
As honorary chair, Bush is to provide leadership and support to
The First Tee’s mission of reaching children through educational
programs that build character and teach values through golf.
The announcement came Friday at The First Tee’s biennial meeting
of more than 600 people involved in various chapters around the
country. The First Tee says it has reached more than 4.7 million
through its programs since 1997.
