We love it when golfers do good things. That’s the story today as we’ve learned Tom Lehman has received Boys Town’s Father Flanagan Award.
While in Omaha Nebraska for the U.S. Senior Open, Lehman was honoured with Boys Town’s highest award at the organization’s national headquarters. The Father Flanagan award is named after the organization’s founder, Father Edward Flanagan. It is given to individuals that dedicate themselves to helping children by making significant contributions to the youth of the nation, and by providing a positive influence by being a role model in public and private life.
Lehman works with many charities, most of which are focused on helping children. He serves on the board of Elevate Phoenix, a civic program that provides long-term, life-changing relationships with urban youth. He is also involved with Cortney’s Place, McKenzie Monks Foundation, Hopekids, Children’s Cancer Research Fund, Search Ministries, The Changing Lives Center for Women and Children, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and Big Oak Ranch. Yes, Lehman is not only an example for our children, he’s an example for us all.
Previous recipients of this distinguished honor include Mother Teresa, Bob Hope, Danny Thomas, Julius Erving, Nancy Reagan, and Michael Jordan.
Big shout-out and congratulations to Tom Lehman on this honor.
