THE nick ressler

The Nick Ressler Memorial Scholarship Fund was established by Nick's family and friends to honor the life of Nick Ressler. Nick was a promising student, artist, musician, athlete, and leader, when he lost a courageous battle with cancer at the age of 14 in 2001. Nick's education in the Concord Public Schools helped shape his life in very positive ways and nurtured his love of learning.

To further other students' pursuit of knowledge, Nick's parents, Paul and Pam Ressler, sisters, Kim (CCHS '01) and Jen (CCHS '08), and Nick's friends and extended family established The Nick Ressler Memorial Scholarship Fund in 2005 to commemorate Nick's classmates' high school graduation year. Nick's family and friends hope that Nick's renaissance spirit will continue to be recognized and remembered by awarding an annual scholarship to a four-year college or university for a local student who exemplifies Nick's pursuit of excellence in the arts, academics, athletics, and leadership
