Kevin Builds Goals for His Future

Categories: 2021, Newsletter

Meet Kevin Kiatsupaibul. He is a long-time active member of First Tee – Silicon Valley. He began our program when he was 7 years old and now at age 17 has taken all 4 Ace level (top level of our program) projects.

Over the years, Kevin developed his interpersonal skills progressing from a shy participant to a volunteer coach. He is currently taking and excelling in the First Tee Leadership Series in partnership with the PGA TOUR Superstore.

“First Tee – Silicon Valley has been a crucial factor in my development as a person, more than any one class at school could have ever provided,” says Kevin. “The goal ladder has always been one of the lessons I most value; it is the single greatest tool for tackling the big and small challenges that life may throw at me.”

Kevin continues to set and achieve his short-term goals of finishing FTSV’s program, giving back to the program through coaching, playing on his high school golf team, and playing percussion in his school’s marching band. His long-term goal is to be a computer scientist and he plans on attending a 4-year college in the Fall of 2022.

According to Program Director, Chris Moreno-Hunt, “Our staff and coaches have had the privilege to watch Kevin over the years as he advanced through the program. He is a motivated, smart, and humble young man who is showing what is possible when setting goals and hard work are combined. We are proud of Kevin and look forward to watching him achieve his future goals.”

Keep up the great work Kevin!
