THE STORY:

The events of 9/11 were staggering and left our family reeling with grief and disbelief. Our son and brother was gone. Nick's brother Pete, during the weeks just following 9/11 contacted Port Richmond High School, Nick's Alma Mater and started the ball rolling to establish a fund in Nick's name, in an endeavor to make sure that Nick would never be forgotten.

When Pete conferred with the Athletic Department at Port Richmond HS, they came up with the criteria to be used to choose the recipient of Nick's scholarship award each year. They decided:

Two students would receive the award each year, a male and a female athlete.
They would have had to face great adversity in their young lives, overcoming it and going on to achieve.
They would have had to apply and been accepted to an accredited college.
Each student would receive $ 1,000.00 which would be paid directly to the
college's Bursars Office in the student's name.
