Grace Holcomb Leaves Her Mark in Wilmington and at First Tee

Categories: Blog, Updates

We are so proud of our Eagle participant, and Laney H.S. senior, Grace Holcomb for winning the Mid Eastern Conference tournament with an amazing score of 65 at Magnolia Greens on Tuesday April 27th. This was Grace’s last conference tournament as a senior. We wish her the best of luck in the 4A East Regional next week and hopefully the State High School Championships as well!

It was also announced this week that Grace was awarded the LPGA/ Girls Golf Marilynn Smith Scholarship. She was one of five high school seniors in the country to receive the award! Congratulations on all your hard work, and perseverance you have shown to achieve your goals! A member of the Peggy Kirk Bell Golf Tour, Holcomb volunteers her time at her local First Tee and LPGA*USGA Girls Golf program. Outside of golf, Holcomb is a dancer, gymnast, All-State violinist, member of the National Honor Society, and fundraiser for St. Jude and The Girls Project through FWB Charity Events. Congratulations on all your hard work, and perseverance you have shown to achieve your goals!

Holcomb will play golf for the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in the fall while working toward a degree in Marketing, with a concentration in social media. Grace has a long list of accomplishments and accolades. The best character trait about Grace is she is humble. We are excited to see her growth in both this world and the game of golf as she heads to Greensboro this Fall. 

 

Best of luck, Grace! We will be cheering you on from Wilmington!
