The Jha'Kyric Nixon Scholarship

Mission Statement: The Jha'Kyric Nixon Scholarship Fund is dedicated to helping graduating high school seniors, who have a financial need, obtain a scholarship to help further their education at the collegiate level. Our goal is to help these deserving students, achieve their educational goals and ultimately better themselves and their communities.

The Jha’Kyric Nixon Scholarship Fund was established in January 2012 to honor the memory of Jha’Kyric Nixon who passed away at the untimely age of 17. Jha’Kyric lived his faith not just with his words, but by his actions: “He could talk the talk. But, he also walked the walk.” He was known for his uncanny ability to inspire people through his love for life and living.

Jha'Kyric's mother was inspired by the overwhelming outpouring of support following her son’s death. Many people wanted to help keep his memory alive and pay tribute to Jha’Kyric. The family started looking at ways of establishing a scholarship fund in his name. What started as informal fundraising efforts culminated in a formal agreement by the Irving Bible Church to act as a fiscal sponsor for a scholarship fund named after Jha’Kyric Nixon.

If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to the Jha'Kyric Nixon Scholarship, please write your check to Irving Bible Church. In the memo, write: Jha'Kyric Nixon Scholarship. You may mail the check to: Irving Bible Church (attn. Tommy Tucker), 2435 Kinwest Parkway, Irving, TX 75063.

Thank you and be blessed!
