Nanzer Memorial fund aids Earlville students

SYCAMORE The Adam Joseph Nanzer Memorial Fund has been established through the DeKalb County Community Foundation to create a scholarship that will provide financial support to an Indian Valley Vocational Center student from Earlville CUSD 9.

IVVC and Kit William Nanzer created the fund in memory of Kit’s nephew, Adam Joseph Nanzer. The scholarship is awarded to a new or returning IVVC student from Earlville with financial needs and can be used to pay for fees, equipment or supplies. The award also may be given to an Earlville High School senior entering the workforce, trade school, or post-secondary education.

”As a result of the generous endowment by the Nanzer family, Earlville students will benefit in many ways for years to come,” IVVC Director Joe Barbic said in a news release.

Located in Sandwich, IVVC is a career center for high school juniors and seniors that serves 10 school districts and offers 17 career and technical programs. School districts served include Earlville, Hinckley-Big Rock, Indian Creek, Leland, Newark, Plano, Sandwich, Serena, Somonauk and Yorkville.

Donations can be made online at or by mail to the DeKalb County Community Foundation, 475 DeKalb Ave., Sycamore, IL 60178. For questions or to get started creating your charitable fund, contact Dan Templin at 815-748-5383 or
