About Us

OIF-II 715

Our Approach

We do not care about grade point averages.  We care only about the heart, commitment, dedication, need and desire of our applicants.

Only those of the best character are chosen by our committees.

We only ask that our recipients go on to serve with love, compassion, and strength

Our Story

Andy Nowacki was killed in action on February 26, 2005 while defending a convoy in Iraq.

The Andy Nowacki Memorial Scholarship fund was created shortly after at Lakeland Community College.

The Andy Nowacki Foundation,Inc, a not for profit charity, was subsequently created in 2009.  The foundation achieved IRS 501(C)(3) status in March of 2010.

This allowed us to extend our services out to other institutions such as Tri-C, Auburn Career Center, and the Cleveland Hts Police Academy.
