About the Scholarship
Pete Corneliusen taught at Newfound from 1969 to 1985 and was co-founder of the school’s Track and Field program. The scholarship commemorates his dedication to good sportsmanship, fair play, honest competition, and camaraderie, and his positive influence on young and old alike.
