Coachella Valley Premier Tee Handpicked Standout for Leadership Summit in Montana

First Tee Coachella Valley members Braden Bernaldo, 17, and Maleyna Gregorio, 18, have been exclusively selected from among 40 teen First Tee chapter members nationwide to attend the second annual First Tee Leadership Summit.

“It’s such a blessing to be able to represent the Coachella Valley,” Bernaldo said. “The First Tee has helped me to have direction in life, to be respectful and to use my nine core values.”

“It’s been a huge part. Not just the chapter, but also the people who work in the chapter and donate,” Gregorio said.

Both participated in a five-week leadership series prior to this honor. They will spend an entire week building their leadership skills and developing their character strengths.

Gregorio says she’s excited about the opportunity but also has bigger aspirations in mind.

“I want to make a difference in the future by continuing to promote equality for women and I think golf is an area where we need a little work,” Gregorio said. “We are going in the right direction but there is always more improvement.”

This first Tee Leadership Summit will be held at West Creek Ranch in Montana from August 1-5.
