Camden Nix the winner of the 7th Annual Mt. Baker HOG Scholarship Award at Blaine High School

Tuesday May 25th, 2010

Tonight was the 7th annual Mt. Baker Harley Owners Group scholarship award. Camden Nix from Blaine High School was the recipient of the $1,000.00 award. All he had to do was have good grades, recommendations from teachers, and write an essay about a family member who owns a Harley and what that means to them. Camden’s essay was titled “You Know You’re Living: When Ya Got Bugs in Your Teeth and Yellow-squish on Your Cheek.”

We were a small and motley group when we assembled to ride from Mt. Baker Harley-Davidson at 5:30 PM. Greg Head the new owner of Mt. Baker Harley-Davidson and the current director of the Mt. Baker Harley Owners Group. Along with Larry Brown who was the first to arrive, Dave and Dawn Johnson, Dave Lahr, and Larry and me. Never under estimate the power that we can be rowdy and yell loudly when the occasion calls for it to cheer Greg and Camden on.

Greg had another family obligation for later in the evening so he drove the shop van to Blaine with the new dealer graphics decorating it and everyone noticing it, followed by the bikes and a cage.

We arrived a few minutes early to be met by Rick Shockley (scholarship coordinator for BHS) telling us there had been a mix up in times posted by the school district and the awards ceremony would not start until 7:00 PM. Now we had plenty of time to chat in the parking lot.

Larry B. secured our seats and we took our places and waited for our turn. The scholarship committee picked a winner in Camden Nix. Before Camden received the HOG scholarship, he won several other major awards.

Greg did a great job representing the chapter and the dealership and making our community of Whatcom County aware that we are more than just those people who wear leather and ride bikes, we support our community and we give back to show we care.

Greg left for home after the HOG award was presented and the rest of us went to Paso Del Norte in Blaine to have dinner. No problem getting a table since the rest of Blaine was still at the awards program. We had an enjoyable evening and look forward to the 8th annual awards next year.

Thanks again to Greg, Dawn, Dave J., Dave L. Larry, B., Larry M. for supporting the chapter and the dealer.
