Nic Tower Memorial Scholarship

The Tower family established this scholarship fund in 2017 in honor of their son Nic. Nic had a lifelong love of learning, from teaching himself to read before kindergarten, to obtaining his chemical engineering degree at the University of Washington, to finally becoming a shift test nuclear engineer near the end of his life. On the way he had friends from all walks of life and a zeal for helping other people. Nic wanted to make the world a better place. The Tower family hopes that this scholarship will provide the opportunity for a student to reach his or her own goals and hopefully relieve some of the financial burden.
