Friendship         Integrity         Passion


In October of 2017 our community lost a beloved student in an automobile accident.  Nate embodied all we want our students to become and he is greatly missed by his peers and teachers.  The Kok family is grateful for the strong biblical education provided to their sons while attending Cross Lutheran and Aurora Christian Schools.  To honor Nate, they desire to assists families with their investment in a Christ-cenered education while rewarding kids like Nate.  

Each year the Nate Kok Memorial Scholarship Committee will seek recommendations from teachers and coaches for students who exemplify the life of Christ and value activities that brought Nate joy and contribute to a well-rounded high school experience.
