Myrna Taunton Memorial Junior Golf
Program and Award
Program: The Myrna Taunton Memorial Junior Golf Program was created by Myrna’s family and golfing friends from Kansas and across the United States . Myrna took pride in being a Kansas Women’s Golf Association (KWGA) member, webmaster and junior program volunteer. Likewise, she loved the game of golf and shared this passion with everyone she met. Myrna especially cared for young golfers and she knew the game would be something junior golfers could enjoy for the rest of their life.
