Nichole Hansen and her husband Adam Billman-Galuhn were students in the North Central College theatre department. They were both really involved, wonderful, creative, energized theatre students. Nichole was a costumer extraordinaire, generously giving of her time even though her career goals did not ultimately lie in the theatre world. Nichole volunteered to work on everything. She also put in countless production hours, always helping out when needed.

In 2013, Nichole was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer. Nichole and Adam decided to get married after they were given the diagnosis, and they battled this awful disease during the first year of their marriage. In September of 2014, Nichole’s battle ended. After mourning the loss of this extraordinary young woman, anonymous donors came forward who wanted to donate annually to a student who exemplified this kind of generous spirit and so the Nichole Hansen Memorial Scholarship was created.
