Kentwood’s Rui Li had a second-place medal in the bag after last week’s Class 4A state golf tournament

Kentwood girls golfer sacrifices medal to keep values intact

Good morning, Rui Li. We don’t know each other – you’re a Kentwood High School teenager; I’m a 40-something in the work world. We probably don’t have a whole lot in common athletically – you like to use golf courses for their intended purpose of playing golf; I’d much rather run on them in a cross country race. It appears there is one little thing that ties us together, though – and a lot of other people, too: Doing the right thing.
