Food Processing Distributor Nelson-Jameson Announces Inaugural College Scholarship Winners

The “Golden Rule” college scholarship program is provided by the Nelson-Jameson Foundation

Marshfield, WI, June 15, 2023 – The Nelson-Jameson Family of Companies recently announced the inaugural winners of its “Golden Rule” college scholarship program through the Nelson-Jameson Foundation. Two students, Kierstyn Kindschy and Nathan Nikolay, were each awarded a $2,500 scholarship for college expenses. The Foundation’s Scholarship Program provides family members of Nelson-Jameson employees the opportunity to apply for scholarships at accredited two- or four-year colleges. 

Kindschy has been accepted to the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire, and plans to major in Elementary Education and Special Education. Her father is Nelson-Jameson employee Andy Kindschy, an Outside core account manager in the Outside Sales department in western Wisconsin. Nikolay is pursuing higher education at Fox Valley Technical College, with a focus on Agricultural Power Equipment. His father, Jay Nikolay, is a Facilities & Maintenance manager in Operational Support in Marshfield, Wisconsin. 

An independent committee of former educators reviewed the applications and selected the winners. Criteria included: status as a first-generation college student; active community involvement and/or volunteer experience; and three essays – one describing why the scholarship was important to them, another on career objectives, and a third on how they live Nelson-Jameson’s Golden Rule values.  The scholarship program will run annually, with each year’s winners announced in May. More information on the company can be found at
