|GJAC Executive Board|
|Rachelle Pearson, Wyoming
From Gillette, Wyoming. Along with my husband, Bob, and our two daughters, Morgan and Ashlyn, we love the game of golf. I first became involved with Junior Golf in Wyoming in 1998 when Morgan played in her first tournament. Ashlyn soon followed and since then it has been a summer tradition to be a part of the Wyoming golf community. I have been on the Wyoming State Golf Association Board for 15 years and have been serving as Treasurer for the past 3 years. I am also on the First Tee of Wyoming Board that was established in 2015. My first Girls Junior Americas Cup was in Las Vegas in 1999 and I have attended every tournament to date. I came on the Board of Directors for the GJAC in 2006. I was Vice President from 2008 to 2014 and became President in 2015. The history and traditions of the GJAC are second to none and I proudly continue to serve as one of its strongest advocates.
