Stepping Stones Class Visits

Lions Club Golf Course

The freshman class of Stepping Stones, a South Arkansas Community College program for young adults with special needs, recently took a field trip to the Lions Club Municipal Golf Course.

 

Stepping Stones, directed by DeAnna Tracy, has a unique curriculum and mission that enables young adults with special needs to benefit from a college setting and develop skills and disciplines that promote greater confidence, independence, and the ability to participate fully in the social fabric of society, said Art Noyes, executive director of KidsNGolf.

 

Noyes leads the class twice a week, familiarizing members with golf by using the front lawn of SouthArk’s east campus as a driving range.

 

He said class members wanted to visit an actual golf course, so a field trip to LCMGC was arranged.

 

“Golf is a wonderful activity for people who are typically not encouraged to take part in conventional team sports. It’s a great fit for Stepping Stones,” Noyes said. “It is a game where growth and success are measured and celebrated individually.”

 

Students toured the LCMGC pro shop, hit balls on the driving range and putted on the practice green.

 

There were also demonstrations on how to play the game from tee to green.

 

For more information on the Stepping Stones program, call Tracy at (870) 864-8455.

 KidsNGolf was the recipient of a $5,000 grant from Lion Oil at the Lions Club Golf Course on Tuesday, in support of their work with junior golf and Union County young people.

 

‘On behalf of our players, families, coaches and board, we are extremely grateful to Lion Oil for this very generous gift,’ said Art Noyes, KidsNGolf executive director. ‘When Bob Ard was able to meet some of our kids and coaches last September at the SHARE Tournament, he congratulated us for our progress and encouraged us to keep up the good work. This will really help!’

 

KidsNGolf is dedicated to teaching golf and the life skills of golf to the young people of this area. Golf instruction is offered to boys and girls ages 8 to 18 each Saturday morning from 9:30 to 11:30.
