River City Bank is excited to announce that Janette Moynier has been named Board Chair of First Tee — Greater Sacramento for 2022. For the past five years, Janette has been committed to an organization that enables kids to build self-confidence, strength of character, and resilience through golf. It includes developing programs that are just as fun as they are meaningful, where kids feel excited to grow, safe to fail, and better equipped for whatever comes their way next.
As this year’s Chair, Janette will help First Tee — Greater Sacramento expand its reach to include even more young people. Currently, the organization serves over 58,000 kids in 88 elementary schools, nine golf course program locations, and within outreach programs throughout the community.
“There are so many worthwhile non-profits in the communities we serve. You ask me why First Tee – Greater Sacramento?” asks Janette. “As the saying goes, a picture says a thousand words; today, it is a YouTube video.” In 2017, First Tee – Greater Sacramento alumna, Noor Ahmed, stated it best in a speech in front of Congress. Noor spoke on how First Tee programs gave her the confidence to overcome bullying in school. See Noor’s speech here.
“As a business leader, I feel it is important to take a moment out of our busy day to invest in our youth who will be our business leaders of tomorrow, “says Janette. “Our core values are attributes we look for in the citizens of our communities, and what better way to teach these values than outside learning the game of golf!”
For over 35 years, First Tee — Greater Sacramento has positively impacted the lives of countless young people in the Sacramento area through the sport of golf. First Tee focuses not only on teaching golf skills but instilling the core values of Honesty, Respect, Courtesy, Judgment, Perseverance, Confidence, Sportsmanship, Responsibility, and Integrity.
