Kuchera Recognized For Tennis Contributions
To honor their 100th anniversary in 2020, the USTA Missouri Valley is recognizing 100 deserving recipients with the Gold Star Award. This award recognizes contributions that recipients have made in growing the game of tennis in their community.
USTA Iowa’s very own Brenton Kuchera, of Waterloo School District, was named a Gold Star Award in the month of May for his commitment to local tennis.
From his time as a captain of the University of Northern Iowa over ten years ago to his current role serving as First Vice President of USTA Iowa, Kuchera’s history with USTA Iowa is long-standing.
“I’ve known Brenton for over ten years from when he was captain of the UNI tennis club team and now as First Vice President,” said John Terpkosh, USTA Iowa Tennis Service Representative. “He has matured into an insightful and capable leader.”
Kuchera continues to give back to the local tennis community, serving as the Tennis on Campus Committee Chair, volunteering at the district, section, and national level as well as staying involved with coordinating adult, junior, and adaptive programming.
His commitment to continuing to grow as a tennis professional, supporting diversity and inclusion in tennis, and providing a positive experience for all makes him a worthy recipient of this Gold Star award.
The recipients of the Gold Star Award will receive personal items to keep, a plaque and a special gift. Congratulations to all of the Gold Star Award recipients.
