Justin Holland recently spoke at the Scottsburg Kiwanis Club dinner/meeting at The Kitchen.  Justin is the owner and operator of Westwood Golf Course and is a Corporate Member of the Scottsburg Kiwanis Club.  Justin started off by saying how appreciative he was to be a member of the Scottsburg Kiwanis Club.  He was thankful for all the things we do for kids in Scott County and looks forward to being a part of the programs and projects we sponsor.  Justin is from Scott County originally and graduated from Scottsburg High School in 1992.  He played golf in high school and represented Scottsburg in the Finals of the Indiana State Championship.  After school he went to work for the PGA in the TPC network.  He learned how to work on golf courses and learned the golf business.  Justin bought Westwood in June 2016.  He has been a PGA member since 2001 and looks forward to bringing his experience to Westwood Golf Course.  He was very appreciative of the outstanding support he’s received from the community and looks forward to bringing in new opportunities for golf in Scott County.  He’s in the process of adding an indoor golf simulator so the avid golfers can play during the often severe winter weather in Indiana.  He hopes to have it in by the end of March.  He enjoys working with kids at the high school to develop golf programs.  He wants to give back to the kids in the community and give some of them the opportunity for golf scholarships.  Justin has been married for thirteen years and has a twelve year old daughter.  He currently lives in Corydon and is trying to sell his home to move here.  Justin wants to increase the profit in the golf course by increasing quantity, not increasing fees and costs.  He feels the golf course serves a great community role in fundraising with golf scrambles for various youth programs and he wants to continue and develop these opportunities.  The members thanked Justin for his presentation and look forward to working with him on projects such as the Annual Kiwanis Golf Scramble to raise money for scholarships.

School District 2 hosted a pilot vision screening project in partnership with Kiwanis International

The Scottsburg Kiwanis Club and Scott County School District 2 hosted a pilot vision screening project in partnership with Kiwanis International and the OneSight Foundation at Scottsburg High School for tenth gradersBill Jerrow, Kiwanis International Strategic Alliance Executive; Lisa Jarboe, OneSight Foundation Director; Heather Crites, SCSD2 District Health Coordinator; and Kiwanians Doris Marcum, Al Riggle, Darryl Smith, Terry Davis and Jack McWhirter participated in the vision screening project.
Doris Marcum completed the Prevent Blindness online training program and was certified as our CoordinatorKiwanis International is working with the OneSight Foundation on the feasibility of creating vision screening kits for Kiwanis Clubs.  If feasible, OneSight would provide lenses and frames onsite to accommodate most correction needs.  For students needing more advanced corrective lenses, vouchers would be provided to access local optometrists and glasses.  Indiana State law requires vision screening for certain grades.  This pilot project selected a grade not included in the mandatory screening.  
 
One hundred sixty-six students were screened in grade 10 from 9:15am – 12:00pmThe screening identified nineteen students that need a referral to more extensive eye examinations that may need corrective eye glasses.  Heather Crites noted that “without the screening today, these 19 students would have gone unchecked until either they complained about vision or someone happened to notice they could not see properly. So a big THANK YOU to Kiwanis for volunteering to help us address this need in our schools. I appreciate it so much and look forward to doing this again!!”
The Scottsburg Kiwanis Club will work with Kiwanis International on the results of the pilot project and look forward to the way ahead for this program to benefit our kidsWe thank Kiwanis International and OneSight Foundation for participating and allowing us to conduct this pilot.  A special thanks to Doris Marcum for all her hard work going through the certification process.  We look forward to the possibility of working with both school districts as this program gets off the ground.
