Tim Nickos presents the scholarship named after his son to Oak Lawn High School 2012 graduate Angela Roti (left) during the school's annual Spring Sports Award Night last year. The Tim Nickos Memorial Scholarship is named in memory of Timothy L. Nickos, an Oak Lawn High student who died when he suffered a cardiac arrhythmia caused by an enlarged heart that had gone undiagnosed. Nickos was to be the captain of the Oak Lawn High varsity swim team his senior year, and also played in the school's band.
The $2,500 college scholarship was awarded for the first time last year. Funds come from the Tim Nickos Memorial Scholarship Candlelight Bowl, to be held Saturday, March 23 at Fox Bowl, 1101 Butterfield Road in Wheaton. The scholarship honoree will be announced at the School's Spring Sports Award Night on May 8.
Tickets are $30 per adult, $25 per student and include three games of bowling and dinner. Raffle prizes and a cash bar will also be available. Reservations must be made by Friday, Feb. 22.
