Hill-Murray receives $3 million scholarship fund in remembrance of graduate


submitted photo • The Mark. C. Nyman Scholarship was established with the help of Jeanne Nyman in memory of her late husband. She’s pictured above with Hill-Murray President Jim Hansen. According to Jeanne, Nyman, a member of the Hill High School class of 1969, suffered from severe asthma as a child, but was an adventurer at heart. Despite illness, he persistently lived life to its fullest, as a child and as an adult. In addition to developing a successful business career in the medical field, Nyman became a world traveler, scuba diver and sail boat captain.
