Athlete of the month: July
Starting with June, every month we will be choosing a member of the month at GTCF. This will allow us to highlight our hard working members and also give everyone a chance to get to learn more about each other.
So to kick things off, our first member of the month is John Sloan. You can always find John coming to class early and staying late to work on bettering his skills. He is a perfect example of hard work and dedication!
Keep up the great work, John!
