Last Wednesday, the varsity football team celebrated last season and recognized the senior class of 2021 at a year end celebration held at Martorelli Stadium. Amongst other awards, that were distributed that evening, senior Nick Pederson was named the recipient of the Shawn Gaertner Memorial Scholarship totaling $5,000.00.
Shawn Gaertner was a 1982 graduate of North Hills High School who passed away due to complications caused by melanoma. Each year Shawn’s family and friends will fund a scholarship to be given to the player who most exemplifies Shawn’s leadership, academic achievement, passion for the game and dedication to the North Hills football program.
Nick plans to attend Penn State Beaver after graduation.
Congratulations Nick, you make us NHPROUD!
