Nelson Vecchione, a dear friend, and family member, had dedicated his life to helping people find a ‘second chance’ at life. By offering guidance and mentorship to people in recovery or with conviction records, he was committed to the betterment of others through his practice. Everyone deserves a second chance, and Nelson believed the spirit of giving someone the opportunity to prove themselves would manifest in creating a new generation of leaders. Offering a second chance to one person may pay dividends down the line as well, as that person may give another person a second chance, continuing the cycle of giving.
To honor Nelson Vecchione’s legacy and to continue his life’s work, this scholarship fund will go towards this scholarship which will be awarded to students who have experienced adversity in their life and are ready to make a change for the better.
