Special Check Presentation

Davis Nickey_1 

President Ray introduced David Nickey who 50 years ago had received $100 from our club to attend a National Science Foundation Program in chemistry at Bucknell University for high school students. Dave related how that donation set him upon the path which would change his life. Through good mentors, he attended PSU and became a chemist for SUN Oil Co. He related that you never know what one act of kindness can do for a person and he has tried to “pay it forward,” so that others have a chance to succeed. He then presented the club with a check for $2500 to be used to help students in need to pursue studies in math, science or technology! The club thanked Dave for his generosity.
