Future Legends nonprofit honors scholars at annual celebration dinner

Future Legends held its annual celebration dinner at the RSF Golf Club on Dec. 27, honoring all the Future Legend scholars, the second class of graduates, and their mentors. Keynote speaker was Nathaniel Crosby, talking about his recently released book, “18 Holes with Bing; Golf, Life, and Lessons from Dad.”

Crosby was inspiring to the scholars and also had a very attentive audience as the scholars all had participated in the First Tee program while in high school. Their academic pursuits are in human biology, bio-chemistry, computer science, chemistry/pre-med, business/economics and one scholar in sports management. This same young man was invited by Dick Enberg to a Padres game to sit in the announcing booth with him, as well as given an opportunity to announce part of the game with Enberg. This fabulous experience was arranged with help from one of the Future Legends mentors.

Dr. Hugh Greenway, co-founder of Future Legends, was emcee of the evening and enjoyed his role of congratulating the young scholars. Jim Boyce, co-chair of the mentoring program with his wife, Beverly, presented Nordstrom clothing gift cards to the senior class scholars. The gift cards are a relatively new benefit to the seniors, setting them up with a Nordstrom personal shopper to buy them an outfit suitable for job interviews as they near graduation.

The Future Legends scholarships program is now into its sixth year, having graduated two years of senior graduates. The program is successful because of the unwavering commitment of its founders, board, and dedicated volunteers, especially the group of mentors that work closely with each of the Future Legend scholars throughout their years at school. Future Legends strives to be the gold standard of the finest mentoring and financial aid program in the country, serving and shaping the next generation of leaders.Future Legends is always seeking new volunteers, especially for the rewarding participation as mentors.
