" I chose to run for the presidency because I have picked up so many skills that I knew could really benefit the program. I hold GCJGSF very close to my heart because they are the reason that I am still a huge golf fanatic. My vision for the organization is to help infuse more technology into the program operations to create more efficiency and acquire sponsorship that will elevate this beloved 41-year-old program. I personally knew the founder, Mr. Willie Horton, Sr, while I was a junior growing up, and I want to continue the legacy that he started so it can go for another 40 plus years." - Jamie Taylor
