Barrett, who serves as Cranberry Highlands Golf Course’s PGA Teaching Professional, was honored as the Tri-State PGA’s 2021 Teacher of the Year. It’s the second time he’s won the award – a rarity – after taking home the prize in 2017.
And while the recognition of students or co-workers is always rewarding, the Teacher of the Year award is voted upon by fellow members of the Tri-State PGA. It’s a fact that Barrett says makes the award that much sweeter.
Barrett has been a PGA professional for more than 20 years, and an integral part of Cranberry Highlands for 15 seasons. He teachers both private lessons and runs instructional programs for all ages.
