1st Year Volunteer

Tracey Morrison was selected from the Volunteer Wait List in March for the 2009 tournament. When she learned she would be part of the Quail Hollow Championship team, Tracey's enthusiasm was evident immediately. Each individual who came in contact with Tracey was affected immediately by her independence, kindness, energy and passion for helping others. Although Tracey faces physical limitations due to cerebral palsy, she was a model volunteer displaying many unselfish acts and a tireless energy.

Interview with Tracey Morrison, 2009 Volunteer.

Where are you from and how many years have you volunteered with the Quail Hollow Championship?
I am a native of Charlotte and the 2009 tournament was my first year volunteering for the tournament.

What characteristics about this tournament have brought you to volunteer?
I love golf and volunteering! Itís also been hard for me to get a job. Volunteering is a great way to help people and fulfill you in a way that a job cannot.

What is your greatest memory from volunteering at the Championship?
Every day was a great experience! I enjoyed working with my team at Paulaís Pool. I loved having the opportunity to help kids and other patrons.

What would be your advice to people thinking of volunteering in the future?
To have fun as you work and enjoy every minute of it!!

Additional comments.
I canít say enough about volunteering with this group of great people. I also enjoy the golfers themselves who were so very nice to everyone.

Paula's Pool Committee Chairs provided additional remarks:

“This was the first year that Tracey volunteered for the Quail Hollow Championship and her commitment was amazing. Tracey volunteered from Saturday, April 25 through Saturday, May 2. She rode her scooter to and from the tournament every single day. She always arrived ahead of her shift and stayed past her shift just to make sure everything was taken care of, smiling the whole time.

Tracey helped us in many areas during the week, but her favorite spot was the Youth View area at the Driving Range where she would make sure children had the best view of the PGA TOUR players. We are happy that Tracey enjoyed her volunteer time with us and look forward to working with her again next year. Thank you Tracey!”
