“Both of my parents, but especially my dad. He has spent countless hours on the golf course with me. He has come home early and gotten up early, just to practice with me,” senior Graci Henard said. “He and my mom have given up their summers to drive me to my tournaments, and they’ve invested so much time and money. I am forever grateful for them.”
