Also in Columbia, Cosmetology instructor and Army veteran Robert Minder, attended the Golf Academy of America Veterans Golf Clinic last March. He commented:

"I first off want to start off by saying thank you for giving me the opportunity to represent Virginia College at the Golf Academy of America Veteran Golf Clinic. I really enjoyed the experience meeting new veterans as well as company representatives. I brought my 13-year old son along with me to share in the experience and boy let me tell you, he really enjoyed himself. They had a drawing and he actually won a gold club. It was a positive experience for others to see my son and I and some of the veterans said they will bring their sons next time."
