April 21, 2017—(Jacksonville, FL)—Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech is pleased to announce that Kaylin Yost, a golfer with hearing loss who has recently burst onto the LPGA scene, will be visiting the children at Clarke Jacksonville on Thursday, May 4.
In mid-March, Yost made national golf headlines when she shot an opening-round score of 67 in her first career LPGA start at the Bank of Hope Founders Cup. She then went on to the POC Med Golf Classic where she got off the alternate list to play. Yost received a sponsor exemption to participate in the LPGA Kingsmill Event and will be playing in her second LPGA event from May 15 - 21. In addition to her busy schedule of professional tournament play, Yost is determined to play in the LPGA Tour in 2018.
While Yost continues to pursue her golf dreams, she also wants to inspire children who are deaf or hard of hearing along the way. At two years old, Yost was diagnosed with hearing loss and she has been wearing hearing aids ever since. She is excited to share her story of living as a young professional athlete with hearing loss, and Clarke is thrilled to welcome her to their campus in Jacksonville.
“I’m more confident now and I want to help,” says Yost. “I want kids with hearing loss to know they can pursue their passions, just like I have!”
The media is invited to join us for Yost’s visit Thursday, May 4 from 10:00 – 11:00 am. The school is planning several special golf-themed activities just for Yost and the children. The media can confirm their visit to get on the guest list by reaching out to Tina L. Morris at 904.479.6699 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
