For Gabby Lemieux, it’s not about the accolades, adrenaline or even pure love of the game.
AMERIND is proud to sponsor athletes like Gabby Lemieux. She is such an inspiration for Indian Country.
It’s about the young, Native American kids watching from home, inspired by the grit, determination and focus it takes to reach one’s goals. Growing up, Gabby was successful at every stage of her golfing career. As a former 5A Idaho state champion, a four-time winner and Big 12 Player of the Year at Texas Tech, and the #1 ranked collegiate golfer in the country, professional golf was the next logical step. Now Lemieux is playing to earn a place on the LPGA Tour and the opportunity to compete among the world’s elite female golfers. An enrolled member of the Shoshone-Paiute Tribe of the Duck Valley Indian Reservation, Gabby is a role model for Indian children working to accomplish their athletic and professional goals. “I want my path to encourage Native youth to follow their dreams,” says Lemieux, “whether that’s in education, sports or their careers.” “Elevating tribal members like Gabby is what AMERIND is all about,” said Derek Valdo, CEO. “We are proud to sponsor an athlete of her caliber as she competes and inspires Indian Country. Her success began with the pursuit and completion of her college degree. Gabby’s efforts both on and off the course are a great reflection on the AMERIND brand.” Lemieux’s gear for upcoming tournaments will feature the AMERIND brand. This partnership connects AMERIND with a Native woman who shares the company’s dedication to giving back to tribal communities and highlighting Indian Country success stories.
