Chief Sealth sophomore Clint Hewitt chosen ‘Future Leader’

Chief Sealth International High School sophomore Clint Hewitt is just back from four days at Disney World, but it wasn’t a vacation: He was one of just two students from our state (all participants nationwide are listed here) chosen to attend the Toro Future Leaders Forum, as part of The First Tee Golf Program. (Clint is at right in the top photo, with the 2 other Northwest participants, Griffin Dahem from Oregon and Haley Chinn of Mercer Island.) Clint’s proud mom Carrie Hewitt explains:

Clint is super-active in our community and most recently volunteered many hours for the Seattle Mariners and Rick Rizzs Toys For Kids annual auction dinner that took place at the Harbor Club in Bellevue just one week ago. He is an outstanding young man that we are so very proud of. …

Clint spent this past summer as one of the Interns for The First Tee of Greater Seattle, working at the Jefferson Golf Course (and just finished) a season of being on the Varsity Football Team for Chief Sealth.

Here’s a website explaining the Future Leaders Forum program. The First Tee, which is also about teaching leadership through programs associated with golf, has posted some photos from the Future Leaders Program on its Facebook page. (You can also find out about the local chapter by going here.)

    Your parents are great role models, Clint. You are following in their footsteps and making them proud. I might add, we are very proud of your accomplishments too!

    Congratulations, Clint! We knew you would/could do great things. After all, you were a quick study in helping crack eggs for breakfast at the Tokeland Hotel many years ago when you were a mere 10 years old.
    All the best in the years to come!

    Clint is one of our neighbors, he couldn’t be nicer or more personable, I’ve yet to see him without a smile. He’s an outstanding young man and so is the rest of his very warm and loving family, we always look forward to seeing them! so congrats Clint, and keep up the hard work, we’re oh so proud of you!
    Happy Holidays, Gail Montgomery
