Bobbi Nickels ’70, former director of Pacific’s Upward Bound program, has raised $25,000 for an endowed scholarship for low-income Pacific students, in honor of her former students. Many small donations, including all of the custodial staff, helped build the fund, which is still accepting donations. Nickels hopes to see the first annual scholarship awarded this fall.
