2014 S.J. Garner Student Excellence Award announced
EKU's PGA Golf Management program is pleased to announce that Kelcy Diseroad has been selected as recipient of the S.J. Garner Student Excellence Award for 2013-2014. Kelcy is a senior Marketing, PGA Golf Management Option major from Martinville, In. She received the award at the PGA Golf Management spring awards ceremony in April.
Program Director Kim Kincer said, "In the program’s eight year history, we have a few students who have been all-stars in and out of the classroom, Kelcy is one of them. Her academic achievements and service to our program have been above and beyond what we could ever imagine. Kelcy was the only student in her class to successfully complete all 14 of her PGA exams on the first attempt. For the past two years she has been involved in the EKU Relay for Life and she was instrumental in developing a PGM team.”
Kelcy will finish her education at EKU with a 7-month cooperative education experience at Milwaukee Country Club in Wisconsin.
The award was established in Dr. Garner's name to honor her contributions to the program. Beginning with the 2010-11 academic year, an outstanding student in the PGA Golf Management program (traditionally a junior or senior) will be selected based on their academic achievement, community service, participation in events, and representation of EKU. The awardee receives a crystal trophy and their name is inscribed on a permanent plaque housed in the PGA Golf Management suite.
An avid golfer herself, Dr. Garner retired as marketing faculty from EKU in 2009 following 25 years of dedicated service to her students, colleagues, and the University.
