     Jiana Blaha

    CONGRATULATIONS to Jiana Blaha, recognized by Mayor Carlos Gimenez and the Miami Dade County Commission as an “Emerging Leader” for her work helping instructors demonstrate golf to children with physical disabilities and autism through The First Tee, a group that strives to impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values, and promote healthy choices through the game of golf. She instills The First Tee nine core values – confidence, honesty, responsibility, respect, perseverance, courtesy, integrity, sportsmanship, and judgment – into her everyday life and mentors others on what she has learned.

    Jiana is also the Treasurer of Student Government and the Vice President of Teens for Fitness at her school.

    Jiana has reached the Eagle level, the highest level, in The First Tee Program and has accumulated over 1500 community service hours since she began with the group in 2009.

    Go Hi-Tides!
