Nick W. and Els Blom Family Endowment
The Nick W. and Els Blom Family has established an endowment to provide scholarship support for students from Stanislaus County. The family was recognized at the 2018 Stanislaus County Alumni and Friends Dinner in March and was added to the Ag One Stanislaus County Hall of Fame. The late Mr. Nick W. Blom immigrated to the U.S. in 1963 from the Netherlands. He was married to his wife, Els, for 51 years and they raised their four children, Ingrid (Mello), Pete, Nick and Marika (Morrison), in Modesto. Nick was publicly known as a tree and vine farmer, turned community leader and local politician. He served 5 terms as a Stanislaus County Supervisor and during his era the Air Quality Commission was created, a controversial trash/energy converter was built and prayer was brought to Supervisor meetings when he became Chairman. His hard work and dedication to community inspired his family to carry on his tradition. Join us in thanking the Blom family for their continued support of the Jordan College!
