Richard "Al" Nixon Scholarship

Richard “Al” Nixon was a coach, teacher and administrator at PHS from 1935-1966. Coach Nixon coached all four major sports at PHS as well as wrestling and boxing. He often coached more than one sport at the same time during a season! The Richard “Al” Nixon Memorial award is given to students who excel in athletics as well as academics and are planning on attending Oregon State University.

Our Pendleton high school athletic memorials can be found in the Buckaroo Hall of Champions (BHC), outside of Warberg Court.  All memorials either recognize outstanding coaches or athletes that have made a tremendous impact on Pendleton High School. Student-athletes at Pendleton High School are chosen annually by their varsity coaches to be recipients of these memorial awards.
