The Nichole Louise Christie Memorial Scholarship is the newest fund at the Ripley County Community Foundation. This fund was created by Nichole’s family after her struggle with cancer. Nichole was an employee of Batesville Middle School, and she loved the students she met through the years. As a sign of an appreciation for the support and love Nichole received during her illness, this scholarship was established.
