Adam Litteken #6 Scholarship 2023 Winner - Nathan Reitz!

We are pleased to announce the 2023 winner of the Adam Litteken #6 Scholarship is Nathan Reitz. Nathan is the son of Jen and Mike Reitz of St. Charles, Missouri. He has a cumulative GPA of 4.5 and is an ACT Elite for having 30+ on the ACT. He was awarded the Ultimate Spartan Award for having the highest GPA on the Francis Howell Central (FHC) ice hockey team all 4 years. Nathan was named co-captain for the team his senior year. He also played ice hockey for St. Peters Central States his freshman year and then played Chesterfield Central States his sophomore and junior years of high school. Nathan is a member of the National Honor Society as well as the Future Health Professionals. He played lacrosse his freshman and sophomore years and is playing tennis his senior year. Nathan is also a Yell Leader for the FHC Student Section and runs its Instagram account. He is also involved in the Activities Leadership Council that Scott Harris, FHC Activities Director oversees. Nathan has volunteered at church for Vacation Bible School and holds a part time job at Anthony’s Produce and works as a USA hockey referee.

Nathan plans to attend the University of Arkansas and major in Biology to pursue a career in Physical Therapy and minor in Business. Nathan believes that you do not need a leadership position to lead. Having attitude can rub off, whether it be in a positive or a negative manner. Nathan said, “these lessons are not only helpful in my current life while playing hockey, and in school, but in the real world as well.” Scott Harris, FHC Activities Director stated in his recommendation letter, “I take great pleasure in assuring you that you could find few examples of integrity, leadership, sportsmanship, and academic prowess that are clearly demonstrated in Nathan, a fine young man and outstanding student athlete.”

At this year’s FHC ice hockey banquet the Litteken family were honored to present the 16th Adam Litteken #6 Scholarship. Amanda Bond, Adam’s sister stated, “after this much time has passed we are seeing how much of a legacy this scholarship was starting to leave. Winners continue to understand the true meaning of the award and feel honored to receive it. We hope that will continue with the years to come.” As tradition, Nathan received the $1,000 scholarship, personalized plaque, a commemorative jacket and was asked to sign the banner that hung in the Rec-Plex. Congratulations Nathan!
