Alumni Spotlight with Anthony Annunziato
The First Tee has always been a program that has been much more than just golf, we pride ourselves on creating quality individuals through teaching good values that will benefit them in all aspects of life. Anthony “Annunz” Annunziato, an alumni of The First Tee here in NYC, is one of those individuals. Today he is an employee with the program at Mosholu Golf Course in the Bronx. Anthony is a key member of the team because he understands the program from the viewpoint of a participant and really understands ways to make the program fun and how to work with the kids. He currently attends City College of New York and in his extra time and off days, takes the subway up to Mosholu to teach the same curriculum that helped him grown into the young adult he is today. Anthony is a fine golfer who competed on the Midwood High School golf team and graduated The First Tee program as an Eagle level participant. During his days as a participant, he was selected to attend the Carolina Leadership Academy twice.
Anthony “Arod” Rodriguez, Director of NY Player Development has known “Annunz” since he first entered the program at the age of 13. “Annunz is a wonderful person to be around and having someone like him helping with the program is a tremendous asset to the team. I remember meeting him when he first entered the program as a youngster and right from the beginning he really embraced the program and embodies all of what it means to be a First Tee participant” said Coach Arod.
The First Tee of Metropolitan New York is happy to have Anthony on board as an employee as we look forward to our most successful year of The First Tee ever in 2018!
