Students Make A Difference: Ben Nicoson – Center Grove High School

If you live on the Southside, you probably know about the tragic death of Rashawn Haskins on Dec. 1. Rashawn was on his way home from a game and was killed in a car accident at U.S. 31 and Main St. in Greenwood. Every parent’s worst nightmare. Rashawn was voted an all-state senior wide receiver and had 25 schools from Division II to NAIA to Division III interested in him as a freshman at their schools. A bright young man with a bright future.

Ben Nicoson did not personally know Rashawn Haskins. Nicoson wanted to do something so he created a Go Fund Me “Hoops for Haskins”. He enlisted the help of the Indiana High School Athletic Association, Center Grove principal Jeffry Henderson and student athletes from across the state of Indiana.

On Saturday 2/16/2019 Ben Nicoson presented a check to the family of Rashawn Haskins for $22,208.92. The funds were generated by the Go Fund Me account in which every basketball player in the state was asked to donate $1.00. That is a lot of students making a difference in the lives of 1 family in Indiana.

Great job students!!
