To honor the incredible legacy of (UHS & BHSN football & werestling) Coach Wayne and Jan Nichols,
a permanent endowment fund has been established in their honor at the Community Foundation of Bloomington and Monroe County.
The Coach Wayne and Jan Nichols Exceptional Effort Fund will allow the Nichols family to make annual grants
to causes and organizations that embody the values of Coach Wayne and Jan,
in particular giving children and youth a bridge to opportunities that will help them succeed and thrive in life.

Donations can be made to the Community Foundation, designated for the Nichols' Fund, online at cfbmc.org or by sending a check to:
Community Foundation of Bloomington and Monroe County, 100 S College Ave Suite 240, Bloomington IN 47404
For other types of gifts or ways to support this fund, contact Meagan Niese, Development Director, at 812-333-9016.
All gifts made to the Community Foundation are tax-deductible.

On August 6th, we will publicly announce the kick-off of this fund, at the King's Blues, BBQ & FunkFest.
The FunkFest is an annual fundraising event for the Carl Deal, Jr. Scholarship Fund, also administered by the Community Foundation.
The Carl Deal, Jr. Scholarship benefits a recipient from the Boys & Girls Club.
Carl played football for Coach Nichols at BHSN and credited him for important life lessons learned from Coach Nichols.

Co-hosted by his widow, Berit Brewer Deal, Tommy Richardson, and The Upland Brewery,
this is an outdoor event at the Upland, 350 W 11th St in Bloomington, with bands, BBQ, and Upland beverages.
Coach and Jan have supported this event each year, along with many alumni from UHS, BHSN, BHSS, and other Bloomington natives.
This is an opportunity to see Jan and share memories, support a good cause and have a great time.

For more details, you can find information on the Facebook Events page.

9/16/05 Chris Sauter Manion writes: "I met Joe Manion at U of Dayton and after getting married at St. Charles Church in Bloomington, we moved to Chicago where we've lived and worked ever since. I'm a National Director of a premiere direct selling company of kitchen tools and enjoy working from home so much better than corporate life! We've recently purchased a second home near Destin, FL where we now spend most of our time. I love to kayak on Choctawhatchie Bay and surrounding rivers. I'm writing a book on the parallels of my spiritual and business paths. I still play piano, added violin and guitar over the years; sing in church choir; and love to read, garden, cook, walk in nature. We have been blessed with two children, Bryan, 22, a fire fighter in Chicago, and Tess, 19, an English major at U of Michigan in Ann Arbor."
9/1/02 Steve Pennington writes: "I have lived in the Omaha, Nebraska area for 17 years now with a second residence in Breckenridge, Colorado. As such I am an avid skier, hiker and bicyclist. I retired from corporate America in November of 2003 and have enjoyed the non-work life immensely. I have been spending lots of time in Breckenridge and invite any classmate to visit."
9/2/02 Andy Schaeffer writes: I graduated with the Class of '71 , but grew up with and attended school with the class of '72. Graduated a year early to accommodate folks' travel plans. Am interested in attending the 1972 thirtieth reunion. Please keep me informed.
