We help young people transition through life with success and tenacity by equipping them with the necessary skills for college and beyond.
We’re proud of our Midnight Golf Program alumni and are pleased to share a few of their stories from different stages in life.
Cameron Weathers, 2016 MGP Graduate
Status: Sophomore at Alabama A & M University studying business
Because of MGP, I am more organized. I have better communication skills, as far as talking to faculty and instructors. I know the dos and don’ts, what is expected of me, and how to carry myself not only as an African American male, but as an MGP alum. MGP also showed me the true meaning of family. It helped me evolve as a leader and as an African American male.
Alex Currington, 2016 MGP Graduate
Status: Senior at Oakland University studying psychology and peer mentor in the Center for Multicultural Initiatives
Golf is a practical way to get to know different professionals. It’s a catapult to success and having social connections. I wouldn’t have ever attempted to play if it weren’t for the Midnight Golf Program. It’s really amazing how rare learning golf is for an African American youth.
Jennifer Hunter, DDS, 2007 MGP Graduate
Status: Dentist, Washington D.C.
It was comforting to know during college there was always a group of people at home who had my back. Regarding decisions I made in college, without a doubt, the invaluable lessons I learned at MGP definitely helped me navigate through some of the tougher times I experienced. Whenever I have a moment to return to Michigan, or someone from MGP comes to Washington, D.C., we make it a point to get together. There is no distance between MGP and myself that can keep us apart.
Dr. Amber Glenn, 2007 MGP Graduate
Status: Wayne State University School of Medicine, first-year medical student
Midnight Golf Program was by far one of the most impactful in my academic career growth and maturity during high school. Thanks to the MGP, I gained numerous employment opportunities even as a young adult and much experience networking with business professionals. MGP provided access to various golf and non-golf scholarships that I applied for and attained, thereby reducing my cost of attendance Kalamazoo College to zero. Since graduation from Kalamazoo College, I have matriculated to Wayne State University School of Medicine. Even with a hectic class schedule, I remain a part of the MGP family, committed to seeing other young adults impacted and transformed through mentoring and the game of golf.
Kirk Welsh, 2007 MGP Graduate
Status: Motivational Speaker, 2015 graduate of University of Michigan
Midnight Golf isn’t simply a program. Midnight Golf is a family that you are bonded to for a lifetime. We help one another, we support one another, but most importantly, we love one another. Midnight Golf is a lineage that I hold dear to my heart and it is a place where I have established life-long relationships with wonderful individuals.
