Letters to the Editor

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: DMV Women a Force on the Links

Thank you for your article, “Wake-Robin Golf Club Celebrates 80th Anniversary at Annual Golf Tournament,” by Martell Pegues in the June 8 edition. As a golfer, I have played golf with women who are members of the Wake-Robin Golf Club and, let me tell you, they can play golf! They are knowledgeable of the rules of golf and they take what they do on the golf course very seriously. It’s something very special to be able to keep a club going for 80 years. At one of their celebration banquets I attended they awarded scholarships to students who were going to attend college to play golf. The whole DMV should celebrate the Wake-Robin Golf Club not just for being around for 80 years but for the wonderful work it does. Congratulations, and I hope you have 80 more years of birdies, pars and even bogies!

WI Interns Set the Bar High

The article by WI interns Noni Marshall and Alexa Imani Spencer, “Journalism Students Poised to ‘Discover the Unexpected,'” in the June 8, 2017, edition was wonderful to read. After reading it, I was very impressed with the skill with which they presented their story. If they are representative of the level of writing done by the other interns, the NNPA and Chevrolet should feel very proud to have these gifted students representing them in this outstanding program. I noticed that all of the interns are from HBCUs. Is that a prerequisite? If so, how would a student, college or university apply to the program? The reason I ask, I have a grandson who is a journalism student at the Virginia State University, and I know his parents and I would love to see him be part of such a worthwhile program. My hat goes off to you for printing the article and to the NNPA and Chevrolet for supporting these young people in their pursuit of their dreams.
