Warren L. Dixon, Jr. Memorial Scholarship Presentation

This $1,000 scholarship was introduced to honor Warren L. Dixon, Jr. who was a distinguished Naperville resident, Vietnam Navy Veteran, a long-time and well respected elected official, and coach to many youth athletes in Naperville. This scholarship is awarded to a local high school senior who will be attending North Central College, has an active duty or veteran family member (immediate, aunt, uncle, grandparent) and has an interest in leadership, service, and displays the spirit of Naperville Responds for Our Veterans.

We are very pleased and excited to present the 2015 Naperville Responds for Our Veterans Warren L. Dixon, Jr Memorial Scholarship to Naperville North Graduate Jacob “Jake” Bashaw.  Jake will be attending North Central College this fall, with plans to achieve a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology with a minor in Psychology. Jake was voted team captain of the Naperville North Varsity Football Team his senior year and was named DVC All-Conference First Team his junior season. As captain, Jake worked hard to be an example on and off the field, giving 100% at all times and encouraging teammates and friends to adhere to the student code of conduct and be good citizens. Jake has participated in the Big Huskie Little Huskie program as mentor, he has been a volunteer for Loaves and Fishes special events, the Naperville Exchange Club, and Girl Scout Cookie Program. On behalf of NRFOV and the Dixon family, we are honored to present the 2015 Naperville Responds for Our Veterans Warren L. Dixon, Jr Memorial Scholarship.
