Charlie Seymour’s family celebrates with academy class, school principals, and the academy director.

On Monday, the San Bernardino Unified School District and its partner Sixtyone Golf celebrated the inaugural class of the Charlie Seymour Golf Academy. While I was unable to attend the ceremony, I know from Mr. Seymour’s daughter Charlotte Hall that the family was excited to attend and share in the realization of his dream, to teach disadvantaged students the sport he fell in love with as a young boy in Detroit.

According to Mars Serna, founder of the academy, Mr. Seymour would regularly visit the SB City Unified School District Family Resource Center voicing his concerns and stressing the importance of education, especially in regards to the disadvantaged students in the San Bernardino area. He had a passion for golf and he saw a great opportunity for using the positive aspects of the game to help students learn valuable life skills.

The academy provides weekly golf introduction sessions for approximately 20 future golfers who were selected by principals from Rio Vista and Henry Elementary schools. And according to Mr. Serna, “the impact upon the scholars has been just like Charlie envisioned.”
