*Employee Spotlight: John Kampes*
This week’s employee spotlight is our very own John Kampes. For nearly a decade, Mr. Kampes has blessed us with his charisma, work ethic, and love of the game. While most know him best as a starter and ranger, you may know him for running the Cecil Law League that plays on Wednesdays. Off the course, Mr. Kampes is the Associate Executive Director at the Cecil County YMCA and also runs a travel baseball and softball program.
Last year, Mr. Kampes was involved in a major car accident. He was turning into the golf course when he was hit from behind by a car going 70 mph. The force pushed him into oncoming traffic, where he again was struck by a vehicle going the other way. He was ejected from his van and suffered two broken vertebrae in his neck, a broken back, both legs, both arms, multiple ribs, paralysis in his tongue and vocal chords. It is a miracle that we have Mr. Kampes not only alive, but in the midst of an incredible recovery and comeback.
Against all odds, Mr. Kampes is not just back to work a year after his near death experience, but plans on being able to play golf at the end of this month.
We at Chesapeake Bay Golf Club are proud to call this incredible man our own, and we look forward to watch him complete his amazing comeback story.
