Cedar Rapids, IA - Applications are being accepted through The Kernels Foundation for the seventh annual Nick Adenhart Memorial Scholarship.
Nick Adenhart was a bright young pitcher who played for the Cedar Rapids Kernels in 2006, and was a rising star in the Los Angeles Angels organization. Only hours after Nick's 2009 season debut on the mound for the Angels, a drunk driver tragically killed him on April 9, 2009 at age 22.
Nick's family would like to honor him by awarding a $1,000 scholarship in his memory. The Kernels Foundation is privileged to administer the scholarship on behalf of Nick's family.
The deadline for submitting applications for this scholarship is Friday, April 14, 2017.
