Angela Chancellor, golf coach
When I started high school I was automatically put into the 7th period golf class, which is the advanced class. I had no idea why but right off the bat I was playing in a varsity 36-hole tournament when I was scoring in the 120s. Coach Angela Chancellor told me to never give up, she told me never to give up and that she would help whenever she could. I knew that if I needed anything I could go to her. She taught me that it is OK to ask for help. She is the kind of person who makes you feel like you are always welcome wherever you go and where you can be yourself.
She knew what she was talking about. She knew that any senior would be looked up to by our peers. She spent 3-years training us on how to be the person that people look up to. I will always remember what she taught me for the rest of my life. That will be the first thing that I teach my child starting from the day that they are born.
While I was scouting for colleges to attend in the fall, I made sure to find a coach and players that I felt comfortable with. The coach at Oklahoma Wesleyan University told me that I was trying out the team and that I was not trying out for the team, which reminded me of Coach Chancellor.
