The Nicholas Jennings Memorial Scholarship was established to honor the life of Nicholas “Nick” Jennings who passed away in November 2004 at the age of 16 as
a result of an automobile accident. Nick was a member of the Hollis Brookline High School Class of 2007. He is remembered best for his vibrant personality that enabled him to bring a smile to anyone’s face. He lived each day to the fullest and believed the best way to do that was simply to have fun. He loved athletics and played lacrosse and football but was very involved in supporting other athletic teams through his school spirit. Nick also expressed his charisma through his artwork, improvisational andmusical abilities.
The scholarship will not necessarily be awarded to the student in the top percentile of their class but to one who exemplifies Nick’s athletic involvement, artistic abilities and his overall personality. This student should have a desire to better themselves academically and to further their learning through continued education. The scholarship fund currently provides a $1,000 scholarship to a graduating senior who attends school in Hollis, Brookline, Nashua, Merrimack, Milford, and Hudson.
To be eligible for this scholarship:
1) You must be a graduating senior attending one of the local public high schools in one of the communities noted above (or in accepted in an Early Enrollment Program in college).
2) You must have been accepted to an institution of higher learning.
3) You must have been involved in athletics and/or theatrical or musical arts.
Announcement of the award of this scholarship will be made at the Awards Night in your community and the funds will be issued to the scholarship recipient and the institution of higher learning in the form of a joint check.
