The Salesmanship Club of Dallas has operated the Salesmanship Club Youth and Family Centers for years. Supported by funds raised through various endeavors including the HP Byron Nelson Championship, its focus has been on helping kids achieve their full potential.
Established in 1920, the Club has been “committed to transforming kids’ lives.” One of its programs was the “nation’s first year-round, residential treatment camp for troubled youths.”
While the focus of the program had targeted local youths, times have changed and so Club officials including President Bill Wilshusen announced two new developments recently:
First a name change. No, not the club. It’s still the Salesmanship Club of Dallas. Rather, the program itself is moving ahead and will be called Momentous Institute headed by Michelle Kinder.
Second, the Club will be “pursuing ambitious goals to share our work and research nationwide to help kids we will never meet.”
Those goals will include:
- The power of relationships
- Focusing on strengths
- Expecting momentous outcomes.
As for the Club itself, the golf tournament will continue and the boys will still don their red pants on the greens.
