C of I student to receive tuition check from Paul's Market Friday
2008. 02. 19.
CALDWELL College of Idaho senior Ben Nass will receive a check for $8,500 as a scholarship that will cover his spring tuition on Friday, Feb. 22 from Paul's Market owner and C of I alumnus Stan Zatica during the Yotes basketball game against Northwest Christian.
The check presentation will take place during halftime at approximately 8 p.m. in the J.A. Albertson Activities Center on The College of Idaho campus.
Nass won his $8,500 scholarship during Shoot for Tuition at the Yotes basketball game on Jan. 26. To win, Nass had to shoot a lay-in, free throw, three-pointer and half-court shot in 25 seconds.
Shoot for Tuition was Zatica's idea several years ago, but this is the first year that anyone's ever won. Zatica came up with the idea as a way to increase student involvement in the games and benefit them directly.
