Author: Kate Kellar
January 4th 2017 - Concord, NH – Dawson Campbell of Newport, New Hampshire and member at Newport Golf Club has been selected as the first-ever recipient of the Adaptive Communications Junior Scholarship. Dawson was chosen for his academic excellence along with his participation and positive attitude on the golf course.|
“Golf has always been an important part of the culture at Adaptive Communications (now Optiv). We have several golf enthusiasts in our company, many of whom have participated in NHGA events over the years”, says Steve Thorpe of Adaptive Communications. “Golf is a sport which teaches important life lessons. These lessons translate well to the type of company we built in Adaptive. We are proud to be the primary sponsor of the NH Junior tour and I am very pleased to present our first scholarship to a worthy recipient in Dawson Campbell. We wish him the best as he pursues his educational and athletic goals at Johnson and Wales University.”
NHGA Executive Director Matt Schmidt added “This is truly a great day for our junior program and Dawson. We would also not be able to present this fantastic scholarship without the help and support of Steve and the entire team at Adaptive. They’ve shown a willingness to help our program expand and we believe the sky is the limit as we continue to grow junior golf in the Granite State. The entire NHGA congratulates Dawson and once again thanks Adaptive for supporting the NHGA junior golf program.”
Currently a freshman at Johnson and Wales University, Dawson played in 12 Eagle events in the two years that he was on the Adaptive Communications Junior Tour. This past season he competed in the Junior Championship and qualified for the Junior Invitational. Academically, Dawson graduated in the top 10 of his class and in his first semester at Johnson and Wales made the Dean’s List with a 3.55 GPA.
Dawson’s father and high school golf coach, George Campbell, said “I know Dawson is very happy to receive this award and is proud to represent the NH junior program. I, as his high school coach know that playing against the best in the State had prepared him for not only his High school golf season, but also got him mentally prepared for the challenges of playing in college.”
The New Hampshire Golf Association and Adaptive Communications are proud to name Dawson Campbell as the recipient of the Adaptive Communications Junior Scholarship. Dawson clearly demonstrates that he is a student first but also loves golf and has been fortunate enough to play in both high school and college.
The Adaptive Communications Junior Scholarship is a new addition to the Junior Tour. It is awarded to an alumnus of the Adaptive Communications Junior Tour that is currently attending college. All candidates for the Scholarship should demonstrate talent in the classroom and ethics on the golf course.
