WFAA’s Shon Gables to Play in this Year’s Inaugural Golf Tournament

It is our pleasure to have WFAA’s Shon Gables participation in this year’s Opportunity Scholarship Golf Tournament. WFAA has been a part of a number of our Alums’ lives in some way for almost 10 years now. Having Mrs. Gables involvement with such an important event carries the relationship that much further. We are grateful to have her on board.
