Newell Family To Create Endowed Scholarship For Long Beach State Men's Golf

May 16, 2018

Long Beach, Calif. - Long Beach State is excited to announce the establishment of the Newell Family Men's Golf Endowed Scholarship, created from a $100,000 gift to the Men's Golf program from Frank and Margie Newell.

This endowed scholarship is being created to recognize the involvement of Newell family members in the Long Beach area golf community and the Long Beach State Men's Golf program.

Frank's father, Frank C. Newell Jr., was a top Long Beach amateur and professional golfer who culminated his career by serving as Head Golf Professional at Skylinks Golf Course for 25 years where he promoted junior and collegiate golf and was honored as a founding member of the Long Beach Golf Hall of Fame. His sons, Frank Newell (1969-1972) and Jeff Newell (1973-1974) were members of the Men's Golf Team for six consecutive years.

"Although I became an attorney and did not pursue a golf career, playing collegiate golf at Long Beach State for four years was one of my most memorable and valuable life experiences," said Frank. "My wife Margie and I are establishing this scholarship to provide future local student-athletes a similar opportunity to enjoy the many positive experiences of competing on the Men's Golf team at the Beach."

"We are incredibly grateful to Margie and Frank Newell for this scholarship endowment," said head coach Michael Wilson. "With this gift, the Newell Family has cemented a lasting legacy that will benefit the student-athletes and program here in perpetuity.

"Their gift significantly helps fund one of our biggest needs and ensures that we can recruit great Southern California golfers. This is an investment in our journey to create championship winning teams."
