Shattuck-St. Mary’s for Sponsoring the Iowa PGA Foundation
 Riverside, Iowa - On behalf of the Iowa PGA Foundation, we would like to thank Shattuck-St. Mary’s as a Sponsor for the 2021 Iowa PGA Junior Tour Season. We want you to be able to get the neat benefits this company has to offer.
 
Shattuck-St. Mary's School is a college preparatory, co-educational boarding and day school located in Faribault, Minnesota. Founded in 1858, Shattuck-St. Mary's takes pride in its long tradition of guiding students to be strong in character, mind, body, and spirit. Located just 45 miles south of Minneapolis and St. Paul, our historic 250-acre campus brings together a diverse student population representing the cultures and heritages of students from 41 states and 27 countries. We offer students the opportunity to pair a challenging and motivating academic program of study with a focused concentration in athletics or the arts. Passionate athletes may seek admission to one of our four sports Center of Excellence programs in figure skating, golf, ice hockey, and soccer. Our graduates go on to excel at many of the nation’s premier colleges and universities as well as distinguishing themselves within their chosen field of expertise.
 
SSM has created a Center of Excellence model designed specifically to meet the needs of dedicated students looking to pursue their passions. The Golf Center of Excellence successfully combines a challenging college preparatory academic program with training and competition at the highest level in its specialized nine-month golf program.
 
Tim DeSormeau, Director of the Golf Center of Excellence program, has been a PGA professional for over 30 years and took over the program in the fall of 2015. Prior to coming to SSM, Tim served
as the head golf coach at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay while also running his own highly successful golf academy. Previously, Tim worked at the Green Bay Country Club for 14 years, splitting time between serving as the Director of Golf and the Director of Operations.
 
Teaching and coaching have been major focuses during Tim’s career. He is a certified Arnold Palmer Golf Academy Instructor and was named the 2001 PGA Wisconsin Section Teacher of the Year. Earlier in his career, Tim was also the head coach for four years at Briar Cliff College. Tim developed a successful junior golf program while at Green Bay CC, and helped his students earn multiple Golfer of the Year awards.
Tim has also been an active member in the PGA during his career. From 2001-2003, Tim served as the Secretary of the Wisconsin Section PGA and followed that with serving as the Vice President for two years before becoming the President from 2005-2007.
 
The Shattuck-St. Mary’s Golf Center of Excellence program allows a student athlete to pursue their
passion of golf on a daily basis. The Golf COE has an excellent track record of college placement
with a 100% placement rating. SSM is currently accepting enrollment for the 2021-22 school year.
