Scholarship

The Nor'Easter Nick Scholarship!

When I was in high school looking to go onto college, I didn’t have two nickles to rub together. I worked hard but growing up in a family that had very little, I had to help pay bills and rent. I made a commitment way back then that when I was in a position to help pay it forward, I would do my best to make sure kids that needed a helping hand could get one. 

Starting this year, I will be awarding TWO $1,000 scholarships to students pursuing a career in Broadcast, Meteorology, or BOTH.
