Pulliam Family Endowed Scholarship
The Pulliam Family Endowed Scholarship was established by Nina Pulliam in memory of her late husband, Rick Pulliam, and on behalf of her family – her son Erik Pulliam, and her daughter, Nicole Pulliam. Nina is the daughter-in-law of Christine Pulliam, an SU College of Education Alumna, MIT ‘69, also her fourth grade teacher. Nina met and married Christine’s son, Rick, when they worked together at Kampground of America (KOA) in Bothell, WA. Rick and Nina establi shed a family-owned and operated property development and management business and worked side-by-side to build the business until he passed away unexpectedly in 2008 at the age of 51. Nina continues to manage the business and has trained Erik and Nicole in the property development and management operation. Nina volunteers two days a week at Evergreen Hospital. She started out at the main visitor reception desk one morning a week, and then became interested in working on the surgical floor where she updates family and friends about their loved ones in surgery.
