New Scholarship Honors Late ACA Graduate, Benefit Planned

A new scholarship established in memory of Nathan Allen, ’03 ACA, will honor the Cape May County resident. Allen died in a car accident in February 2006 at age 22. In addition to the endowed scholarship, Allen’s family is planning a benefit Feb. 23.

Allen loved nature, adventure, sports and cooking. “When he was not off on a snowboarding trip, going on a spontaneous road trip, playing or practicing golf, he could be found whipping up a nice meal for his friends,” said Allen’s sister, Alyssa Allen.

He worked at the former Ocean Drive Seafood and Oyster Bay in Cape May.

This year’s “Night for Nate” benefit will be Saturday, Feb. 23, at the Avalon Golf Club in Cape May Court House. Proceeds will benefit the scholarship fund. The event begins at 5 p.m. Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. Contact Alyssa Allen at lyssaleah@hotmail.com or (609) 529-7645.

The first scholarship award will be given to an ACA student in May. For more information on scholarships, visit http://www.atlantic.edu/finaid/scholarships.htm.
