2012 Nick Adenhart Memorial Scholarship Winner, Mack MattkeJune 21, 2012 - Midwest League (MWL) Cedar Rapids Kernels
Mack is a 2012 graduate of Xavier HS where his school activities, academic accomplishments and baseball accomplishments were quite impressive, making him an excellent choice for the scholarship. The Mattke's were a Kernels Host Family in 2006, giving Mack the opportunity to know Nick while he was with the Kernels. Mack plans on attending Purdue University to study engineering and play baseball.
Nick Adenhart was a bright young pitcher who played for the Cedar Rapids Kernels in 2006, and was a rising star in the Los Angeles Angels organization. Only hours after Nick's 2009 season debut on the mound for the Angels, a drunk driver tragically killed him on April 9, 2009 at age 22.
Nick's family would like to honor him by awarding a $1,000 scholarship in his memory. The Kernels Foundation is privileged to administer the scholarship on behalf of Nick's family.
