SAN ANTONIO -- The San Antonio chapter of the Executive Women’s Golf Association (EWGA-SA) recently named its four recipients of the 2011 Nancy Dooling Scholarship. While three of the scholarships went to students from San Antonio, the association’s fourth selection was Lynette Quiroga, a sophomore at Floresville High School.

The Nancy Dooling Scholarship is awarded each year to young women golfers between the ages of 13 and 18. The scholarship is based on academic and athletic achievements, community service, and the role that the young women expect golf to play in their lives. Scholarship recipients typically receive $1,000 to help support improvement of their golf game, which may include the purchase of new equipment, golf instruction, travel expenses, and other golf-related expenses.

In addition to Quiroga, Brigette Mary Lee of Keystone School, Elsa Maria Diaz of MacArthur High School, and Nikki Alexandra Long of Johnson High School were this year’s scholarship recipients.

Quiroga is fairly new to the game of golf, but is a quick study, and has enjoyed playing with her family and classmates for a little more than a year now. She is a member of the Jaguar golf team, and said she is able to play four or five days a week during the season. During the offseason, however, that number drops to just a few times each month. When she can’t be on the course as often as she likes, however, Quiroga will squeeze in some time on the driving range and at home. She is also planning to play in the Pan American Golf Association National Junior Tournament this summer.

Part of what made Quiroga stand out to the EWGA is the extent of her community service. In addition to her schoolwork, where Quiroga maintains a 3.5 grade-point average while taking a schedule full of advanced placement classes, she also finds time to help those in the community. Quiroga has served as part of the Floresville High School Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), volunteered at Floresville Elementary in the Reading Roundup Program, participated in the Mighty Tiger Band Color Guard, Spanish Club, Red Cross Club, Floresville Leo Club, Relay For Life, Breast Cancer Awareness Festival Board, and more -- all things the scholarship committee was looking for.

“I believe my academic achievements, combined with my commitment to the community and the game of golf made me stand out among other applicants,” Quiroga said.

Quiroga’s mother, Monica, expressed her pleasure in receiving news of the scholarship, and explained how important golf has become to their family.

“We are extremely proud of Lynette for being awarded this scholarship. Lynette is an exceptional daughter, student, and community volunteer,” she said. “Golf is more than just a game in our family; it is a way of life. Golf teaches our kids about values they can carry with them forever, values like integrity, honesty, perseverance, sportsmanship, and courtesy.”

In addition to the scholarship money and certificate of achievement, Quiroga and the other scholarship recipients also have been invited to participate in a scholarship tournament Saturday, May 7, at the Pleasanton Country Club.
