Jan 6, 2011

In a first-ever award by Golf Academy of America, Scott DeVaux of the Myrtle Beach campus has been honored with the National Faculty of the Year Award for 2010.

DeVaux has been employed at GAA in Myrtle Beach since December of 2006. A Class A member of PGA of America, he has taught all the courses related to golf instruction and is recognized for his ability to transform his students into outstanding golf instructors.

In addition to conducting clinics and lessons for students and staff members, DeVaux goes "beyond the call of duty" by pairing first semester students with more advanced students for tutoring, organizing golf events for students who are unable to return home for the holidays, and organizing students to teach Special Olympics golfers and run other outside tournaments.

While working for GAA, Scott has completed a Bachelor's Degree and is pursuing his MBA online through Virginia College.

Scott and his wife, Allison, have four children and reside in Myrtle Beach.
