Keiser University’s College of Golf and Sport Management was pleased to welcome Mr. William Hannigan, Physical health & Wellness Specialist and Coordinator for the Wounded Warrior Project(WWP) to the campus. He brought his service dog, Pepa, and they toured the campus and visited with students, faculty and staff.
Keiser University (KU) and the Wounded Warrior Project are working together to develop a new pilot program to introduce WWP veterans to the game of golf. The golf students will volunteer their time and service to offer hands-on instruction, education, and playing lessons to the WWP veterans.
“We will also explore opportunities to provide some adaptive golf lessons for interested WWP veterans,” said John McMurry, Campus Vice President. “During the visit it was discussed how golf can serve veterans in so many ways as they transition back into their communities and day to day lives.”
