IVVC and Kit William Nanzer created the Adam Joseph Nanzer Memorial Fund in memory of Kit’s nephew, Adam Joseph Nanzer. The scholarship is awarded to a new or returning IVVC student from Earlville with financial needs and can be used to pay for fees, equipment, or supplies. The award may also be given to an Earlville High School senior entering the workforce, trade school, or post-secondary education.
“As a result of the generous endowment by the Nanzer family, Earlville students will benefit in many ways for years to come,” said IVVC Director Joe Barbic.
Located in Sandwich, IVVC is a career center for high school juniors and seniors that serves 10 school districts and offers 17 career and technical programs. School districts served include Earlville, Hinckley-Big Rock, Indian Creek, Leland, Newark, Plano, Sandwich, Serena, Somonauk, and Yorkville.
“We are excited to partner with IVVC and the Nanzer family in managing this endowed Fund.” said Foundation Executive Director Dan Templin. “Funds such as this that provide tangible support to students attending vocational programs like IVVC are critical in today’s workforce preparation.”
