K.G. Wells, Jr. AcademyHelping Kids Become Successful

Remembering K.G. Wells, Jr.

K.G. Wells, Jr.There are lots of stories we all can share about K.G. along with our own treasured personal experiences of knowing him.  There is no way to adequately describe with words all the ways in which K.G. enriched so many lives.  We can’t think of a better way to remember K.G. than by helping kids in his name.

Golf and Life Skills

The K.G. Wells, Jr. Academy for Kids is a golf and life skills school for disadvantaged children.  Our programs have been patterned in part after the Chi Chi Rodriguez Youth Foundation in Clearwater, Florida.  The Rodriguez Foundation is one of the top five children’s foundations in the country.  We are grateful for the support and encouragement we have received from the Rodriguez Foundation.

Helping Kids

Just as K.G. Wells, Jr. did, we all want to make a difference in the lives of those who are not as fortunate as we are.  By teaching kids the game and etiquette of golf and other life skills we  will make a real difference in many young lives here in our community.  The Academy is dedicated to helping disadvantaged youth become socially well-adjusted, well-educate, and motivated members of society.  We believe that the kids we help will become role models for their peers.

Our Vision

“Helping disadvantaged kids become successful members of our community by teaching them important life skills, by encouraging and supporting them academically and giving them the opportunity to learn how to play golf.”

Coordinating and Collaborating with Other Children’s Charities

In addition to coordinating our golf program with the Heart of the Ozarks Junior Golf Foundation, we have coordinated our efforts and programs with the YMCA, Boys and Girls Club, the Ozark Literacy Counsel, Big Brother’s and Big Sisters and the William L. Gray Family Foundation.
