Kellar Set to Join NHGA Staff
December 16th 2015 - The New Hampshire Golf Association (NHGA) is happy to announce that Kate Kellar will join the NHGA staff in the role of Director of Communications and Member Services, effective February 1st. Kellar previously served as the USGA PJ Boatwright Intern for the Vermont Golf Association for the last two seasons. Kellar will take the spot vacated by Greg Howell, who was promoted to Tournament Director in October.  

Executive Director Matt Schmidt felt that Kellar’s previous experience with the VGA made her a logical choice to join the staff. “Kate comes highly recommended from the staff and board in Vermont, an association that we work closely with.” said Schmidt. “She understands the demands of working for a State Golf Association and I am fully confident that she will be an asset for the NHGA for years to come. Her position will be vital in our continuing effort to provide outstanding support to our member clubs and 14,000 members. I’m thrilled that she has chosen to join our team.”

Kellar is a 2013 graduate of New England College in Henniker, NH where she majored in Sports and Recreation Management. She was a four-year member of the Varsity Women’s Ice Hockey team at NEC while earning Dean’s List honors in eight semesters.

Kellar is eager to put her past experience to work. “I wanted to continue my golf career because of my past experience working with the Vermont Golf Association. Working with them for two seasons as the Boatwright intern was one of the best decisions I've made because it gave me more experience and led to this job with the NHGA.  I'm excited to continue this career and it is an extra benefit to be able to do it in New England.”

Kellar will assume her duties on February 1st.
