The Nicholas "Nick" Breach "Never Give Up"
Charitable Foundation Scholarship
In 2012, The Foundation for Enhancing Communities was privileged to be selected to house the Nicholas Breach “Never Give Up” Charitable Foundation Scholarship. We are honored to be able to remember this amazing young man each year as new students are awarded his scholarship. Nicholas’ parents Rick and Kim Breach established the scholarship for those “who need a bit of a boost” to reach their goals.
Nicholas Breach was born in 1985 and was diagnosed with a brain tumor at age six. After a courageous battle, Nick died in 2000. Nick was an organ donor, and was able to donate his eyes. The story of his struggles, and his belief in the benefits of organ donation, was covered by local and national media including The Patriot and The New Yorker magazine. He also had visits from former Governor Tom Ridge, Weird Al Yankovic and the entire Camp Hill student body.
The Nick Breach “Never Give Up” Scholarship will be awarded to a senior graduating from Camp Hill High School who will be furthering their education in a college, trade school, or certified vocational school. The scholarship is open to those with at least a C average.
