Nikolaus Drake Richardson Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Nikolaus Drake Richardson Memorial Scholarship was established by Nik’s parents, Dan and Kathy Richardson, following his death in 1999. When asked why they chose to establish a scholarship in memory of their son, they wrote, “Those who knew Nik realized how great a young man he was, and knew the role he played in the life of Seaman High School, and the role Seaman High School played in his life. While active in many extracurricular activities involving work, church and helping others, it was Nik’s relationship with his high school classmates and teachers that guided us to establish this scholarship so that his life might continue to shine through helping others reaching their goals.”

  1. High School senior at Seaman High School with a 3.0 GPA or higher; and
