Future Plans: Earn her PGA certification and coach golf
Rebbecca Ramirez has been playing golf since age 12 when her father bought her a pair of clubs at a garage sale. Now, as a member of the University of Illinois Springfield golf team, she’s played in 11 tournaments and has a stroke average of 82.91. At UIS, she’s majoring in psychology and using what she learns in the classroom to help her on the course. She was recently named to the Great Lakes Valley Conference’s Academic All-GLVC list for 2014-15 and also is a member of the UIS Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. She says playing golf at UIS has helped her grow as a person and a leader.
Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
