Nix Family Scholarship 2021

Nix Family Scholarship 2021

We are excited to announce our 2021 Nix Family Scholarship recipients.

The Nix Family Scholarship was established to provide a $1,000 scholarship for a student from North Posey High School, Gibson Southern High School and Mater Dei High School. To receive the scholarship, the student must be furthering their education in the trades or advanced manufacturing (robotics, mechanical engineering, industrial supervision, industrial maintenance, drafting/CAD, or related field).

This year, we were fortunate to be able to attend North Posey’s Senior Honor Program.  Adam Nix, Vice President of Nix Companies, presented Tyler Thompson with his scholarship.  The two other scholarship award recipients were Ayden Elpers of Mater Dei High School and Owen Bryant of Gibson Southern High School.

Congrats to all the 2021 High School Graduates!
