First Tee – Lake Erie President & CEO Adam Reny shares, “Bob’s commitment to the youth we work with at First Tee is unmatched. Day after day, Bob shows up with a smile on his face and is ready to make sure each kid in his class has a fun and positive experience at First Tee. Without Bob and others like him, our organization’s impact would not be near as great. On behalf of our board and staff, we congratulate Bob for this well deserved national recognition!”
