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.)
