The resolution noted that all seven members of the Drew golf team were trained under the First Tee program, which exposes golf to youth who otherwise might not learn the game.
Drew’s championship team had seven members, including three seniors who graduated and are now attending college. Five of the members were present for Tuesday’s presentation.
