Area Colleges: UIS coach honors father

The University of Illinois Springfield women’s golf coach Nichole Inkel-Pongracz has started the H Albert Inkel Memorial Scholarship Fund with her mother, Becky Inkel, to honor the coach’s father, who died April 3.

The scholarship will go through the University of Illinois Foundation and will be awarded to an UIS women’s golfer. The student-athlete must be in good academic standing and write an essay on how golf has influenced her life.

Donations to the scholarship fund can be sent to UIF/UIS women’s golf scholarship, H Albert Inkel Memorial Scholarship Fund, One University Plaza, PAC 591, Springfield, Illinois 62703.

A memorial for H Albert Inkel will take place Friday at Illini Country Club. The service is at 5 p.m. with a celebration of life to follow.

The scholarship was featured in a May 26, 2010, article in The State Journal-Register.
