Trinity Alumni-Sandy Newman

The Trinity Alumni-Sandy Newman Golf Scramble is played each year in memory of William “Sandy” Newman ’67. Sandy participated in a number of activities during his four years as a Trinity student, including the National Honor Society, the Pep Club and the Soccer Club. He received a Shamrock Award for his academic achievements during his junior year.

As an alumnus, Sandy served on the Alumni Board of Directors for more than 10 years, and as treasurer for more than six of those years. He was extremely active in Alumni Association activities and instrumental in organizing the Alumni Golf Scramble until his untimely death in 1994. In 1995, Sandy was posthumously named the Honor Alumnus for his loyalty and dedication to Trinity. Sandy was best known for his unfailing desire to help with any Alumni Association activity that promoted Trinity. For Sandy, supporting Trinity was not any one effort; it comprised continuous efforts to promote Trinity each and every day.

Though Sandy is no longer with us, those members of the Trinity Family who knew and loved him will remember his spirit and love for Trinity High School.
