Jayla Rogers, a former Laney High School golf stand-out, was awarded the 2021 NBA x Mountain Dew All Star Scholarship over the weekend. She was featured during the Skills Challenge and 3-Point Contest of the NBA All Star Game on TNT. Only 2 student-athletes were selected for this $50,000 scholarship to go towards their education.
As an alumnus of First Tee – Coastal Carolinas and current Coach with First Tee – Greater Wilmington, Jayla lives by what First Tee is all about. She gives back to her community, is committed in the classroom, has no mercy on the golf course. Jayla’s success on and off the golf course is directly related to the kind of person she is. Her success has been earned and she deserves it!
Congratulations, Jayla, on this wonderful achievement. First Tee – Greater Wilmington is proud to have you on our team to help us mentor and build game changers in our community.
