The Cedar Rapids Kernels announced Monday they are accepting applications through The Kernels Foundation for the Nick Adenhart Memorial Scholarship.
Adenhart pitched for the Kernels in 2006 but was killed in an automobile accident with a drunken driver in 2009, hours after he made a start for the Los Angeles Angels.
Adenhart's family created the scholarship in his name, awarding $1,000 a year to a senior area athlete who will attend a two-year or four-year college.
"The applicant must have played an organized sport in the last two years (does not have to be a school-sponsored sport), must be a good teammate, must demonstrate hard work and determination, and must have a clear vision of their career goal."
Applications are available through guidance offices in area schools or may be downloaded from www.kernels.com. For more information, contact Kernels General Manager Doug Nelson at (319-363-3887) or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
