Francis Awarded Dennis Kettmann Scholarship

Categories: 2020, Newsletter

The 2020 Dennis Kettmann Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Francis Agcaoili, a recent graduate of The First Tee of Silicon Valley.  Each year participants in the Dennis Kettmann Memorial Tournament raise funds to remember Dennis. Their generosity underwrites a special $5,000 scholarship for a TFTSV chosen participant.

Dennis’s son and co-organizer of the Memorial Tournament, Matt Kettmann, learned the game from Dennis and knows that he must be smiling wherever he is knowing that his memory is now helping young people with TFTSV pursue their collegiate dreams.

Francis has been a participant of TFTSV for 4 years. He joined as a sophomore in high school and quickly progressed to the Eagle certified level. Francis also was a Volunteer Coach for 2 years. Francis’ leadership and interpersonal skills makes him a great recipient of the award. The scholarship will help provide the financial means for him to attend college at UCSD and study electrical engineering.
