Good job Brew Bros! This is an awesome charity on which we have a direct impact.
In June, 2013, Scott Ketelaar was chosen as the latest recipient of the Nick Brunetti Scholarship Fund. Below is a letter from Nick’s parents.
Scott Ketelaar was the recipient we chose this yr. to receive Nick’s scholarship. A well deserving young man graduating with honors. Will attend Rochester Institute of Technology in the fall. He has overcome lots of neurological issues since 8th grade. He is paralyzed on his L side and has bilateral hearing loss. He has a very positive attitude and has been interested in computer programming since 8th grade. He has developed many web applications already! Very proud but very sad night as well.
