  • Jordan Sisk Named Charlie Burkart Scholarship Recipient

    Jordan Sisk Named Charlie Burkart Scholarship Recipient-
    Riverside, Iowa - Jordan Sisk, Keokuk, Iowa native has been selected as the 2022 Charlie Burkart Scholarship honoree by the Iowa PGA Foundation Charlie Burkart Scholarship committee. 
     
    Congratulations to Jordan Sisk on receiving this award.
     
    Jordan will be attending Eastern Iowa Community College-Muscatine Community College Campus. He thought of everything from Petroleum Engineering to joining the F.B.I. as a Behavioral Analyst at first. He eventually found something that filled his sports interest and gave him a career option, that being a Golf Course Manager. Being a Golf Course Manager would allow him to fulfill his sports addiction and also make a career out of something that he loves to do - golf.
     
    Hopefully in two years he will receive his Associate Degree in Applied Science and start that dream of his to get a full-time job working at a golf course. His main goal from that journey will be to one day work at Augusta National Golf Course in Augusta, Georgia. He knows that is a big goal to set when he hasn’t even started the program. He was told to aim for the moon so if he falls short, he can land in the stars. In ten years, he wants to be the superintendent of a medium-sized golf course somewhere in the south, along with being able to live somewhere on the golf course. He wants to be able to give back to the game of golf since it has given him so much already.
     
    Jordan was asked on what this award mean to him. “Being named the recipient for the Burkart Scholarship is such a tremendous honor. It goes to show that golf can make such an impact upon someone's life outside the game itself. Having the opportunity to play in the Iowa PGA Junior Tour events is something that I will forever be grateful for as it allowed me to grow myself as a person and let me do what I love most in golf. Additionally, it has also opened my eyes to the countless career possibilities that are associated with the game of golf. Getting this scholarship will now propel me towards my goal of becoming a golf course superintendent and will allow me to be able to give back to the game that gave so much to me. The Iowa PGA is such a tremendous organization and I plan on representing them in a positive way to hopefully grow the game of golf in the future.”
     
    Dana Hendricks has some nice words to say about Jordan. “Jordan has been active in every aspect of his school and community while maintaining a 4.0 GPA He also has been on Honor Roll all three years and has served on Student Council for two years. Jordan understands the concept of giving back because he is on the Youth Leadership team that does just that, sets an example, volunteers, and gives back to those within our community. He bags food at the Crossing for those in need and participates in community trash pick up to promote our community. Those characteristics have led to the Student of the Month Award, and ultimately the Citizenship K Award, which is given to the best of the best within our school.”
     
    “There are certain qualities we look for in our students, and some students stand out because of these qualities. Jordan can handle adversity. He has proven leadership. He is extremely trustworthy. Academically, and in daily interactions, Jordan stands out among the crowd. Beyond an ideal student, though, lies his true worth: he is an amazing young man. I am confident Jordan Sisk would make an excellent choice for this scholarship. I look forward to witnessing all of the successes he has in store for the future, and I am certain he will excel with the help of this scholarship and make your organization proud.” Zachary S. Short, M.A., M.S.E. of Keokuk High School.
     
    The Iowa PGA Foundation annually awards a college scholarship in memory of Charlie Burkart, PGA member for 49 years and Head PGA Professional at the Elmcrest Country Club in Cedar Rapids for 42 years. The purpose of the scholarship is to assist students in furthering their education. At least one high school graduate will be the 2021 Scholarship recipient in the amount of $1,500 per year for four years. Other previously graduated applicants will be reviewed with additional scholarships awarded when possible.

    Any graduating high school senior or previous graduate residing within the boundaries of the Iowa PGA Section and the State of Iowa is eligible to apply. The Iowa PGA Section is bounded on the west by U.S. Highway 71 and includes an area of Western Illinois from a point north of Quincy, east to near Springfield and directly north. It includes the major cities of Monmouth, Macomb, Galesburg, Moline, Rock Island, Kewanee and Galena. It does not include the cities of Freeport, Springfield or Quincy.
    Scholarship winners are selected on the basis of their interest and activity in golf, the potential for future contributions to the game, leadership skills/community involvement, then on their academic/professional ability and financial need.
    The Iowa PGA Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2023 Charlie Burkart Scholarship. Applicants must complete the application and mail to the scholarship committee prior to TBD. Applications can be mailed to Iowa PGA Section, 3184 Highway 22, Riverside, IA 52327. Call 319-648-0026 with any questions.
