MISD Expands The First Tee Program

First Tee West Texas announced in May 2018 that MISD would be expanding The First Tee National School Program (NSP) throughout all elementary schools. Today we’re pleased to inform that MISD has selected nine more elementary schools to begin this fall.

  • Bowie Fine Arts Institute
  • Carver Center
  • Fannin
  • Jones
  • Milam
  • Parker
  • Pease
  • Santa Rita
  • Yarbrough

With this expansion The First Tee NSP will now reach approximately 8,600 elementary students ages 6 through 12. In addition to our first four schools (Burnet, Franks, Greathouse, Washington STEM) started in October of 2017; this expansion will now bring our total up to 13 elementary schools in Midland.

We’re very excited to be a Partner in Education with MISD and want to thank our generous First Tee West Texas supporters along with MISD Superintendent-Orlando Riddick, and Audra Hooker-MISD Dir. Of P.E., Health, and Wellness.

I'm a founding member and Exe. Director for First Tee West Texas. I reside in Midland, Texas and employed in commercial banking/energy lending. I realized a need in West Texas for expanding opportunity and accessibility to area youth to discover, learn, and participate in the lifelong sport of golf. In March 2017 I began a partnership with The First Tee of St. Augustine, FL. to bring their programming to West Texas.

  1. This is so exciting! How do we sign up our children to participate? Or is this included in the PE Curriculum?

    1. It’s possible that your child is already participating in the NSP at their elementary. Currently we have 13 schools in Midland offering the program. We’ll add 7 more in January of 2019 and then when school starts in the fall of 2019 we’ll add 7 more. At that time all 27 elementary schools in Midland will be teaching the First Tee National School Program during PE classes.
      We have a lot more coming in 2019 at local golf courses. Come and join us!
