Hi everyone, just a quick update on Nick’s scholarship: as of our last update, we have raised approximately $37,000, still to be matched, for a total scholarship fund of $74,000. You might recall that we raised our goal to $50,000 in donations to be matched for a total of $100,000. We’re just $13,000 shy of that goal. While our initial fundraising deadline of Feb. 29 has passed, we have decided to extend the deadline to this Saturday, March 5 – the day of Nick’s memorial. Dina has requested that donations be made to the scholarship in lieu of flowers and other gifts. So if you are still contemplating a way to show your love and appreciation for Nick, please consider donating to the scholarship fund. Your donation will help fund several scholarships for budding student journalists, teachers and mentors at Homestead High School for years to come! Please spread the word for one final push, and feel free to share this post!
