Mark Pavone Leadership Scholarships

Mark Pavone Leadership Scholarships

Two $2,500 Scholarships, awarded in June 2023

Mark Pavone is a former Manhattan Little League President and long term Manhattan Beach youth sports volunteer for over a decade including coaching both Manhattan Beach softball and baseball teams. Mark loved giving back to the community and providing a positive experience for the players and teams he coached.  In 2016, after a long illness, Mark passed away but his memory lives on with his family and all of those who volunteered with and played for Mark.

In recognition of Mark’s volunteer legacy, the Pavone Family is providing two $2,500 scholarships to two High School seniors (one young woman and one young man) who reflect the volunteer virtues that Mark held. The Scholarships have three main goals:
