Innsbrook is proud to share that its PGA Head Golf Professional Kevin Corn is the recipient of the 2015 Gateway PGA Bill Strausbaugh Award. The award is presented to a PGA Professional who, by their day-to-day efforts, has distinguished themselves by service to their community and by mentoring their fellow PGA Professionals in improving their employment situations.
The award reflects the characteristics and qualities of Bill Strausbaugh, a PGA Master Professional who died in 1999.
“Kevin has demonstrated a record of service to the Gateway PGA and our National Association with qualities of leadership and hands-on involvement in civic activities and local charitable causes within the community,” said Gateway PGA Executive Director Josh Riley.
Kevin was instrumental in the implementation of a local effort to positively impact the youth through golf at Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital. The hospital is one of a handful in the U.S. that provides subacute medical treatment for children, regardless of the family’s ability to pay.
“The golf program at Ranken Jordan is very, very special to me,” said Corn. “To date we have positively impacted the lives of over 1,700 kids and their families. From something as simple as putting a smile on the face of a 5-year-old girl to watching a 13-year-old boy take the first steps of his life up to a putting green, the weekly golf clinics are very inspirational and humbling.”
Corn was honored at Gateway PGA’s 2015 Awards Gala on Sunday, December 6.
“Kevin has always demonstrated a record of service to the Gateway PGA and continues to separate himself through hard work and professionalism,” said Riley. “Kevin was recognized through the awards process, by his peers, because of his involvement and pursuit to always become better as a PGA Professional.”
