The Cedar Rapids Kernels and Kernels Foundation will present Claire Wenisch as the winner of the 2014 Nick Adenhart Memorial Scholarship before the Kernels game with Burlington on Sunday, June 15th.

Claire plans on attending the University of Northern Iowa to major in accounting.
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 continues to honor him with the awarding of a $1,000 scholarship in his memory. The Kernels Foundation is privileged to administer the scholarship on behalf of Nick’s family.
