Jesus Anguiano of Kingsborough Middle School recently had the opportunity to enjoy a round of golf with professional golfer Esteban Toledo. Anguiano’s driving skills were really put to the test but it was his writing skills that got him there.
Anguiano took part in a contest sponsored by AT&T and had to submit an essay explaining why golf was important to his life. He recalled meeting Ben Crenshaw, a two-time PGA Masters winner, and being impressed by the way Crenshaw connected to youths. Anguiano wrote how that is the same type of connection he tries to make with his students.
“The connections I made with golf and the relationships I have established with people have helped me to see a whole other side of the sport that I think I would not have had the opportunity to see,” said Anguiano.
