Nicole Leann Chauvet was born April 26, 1990 in Canonsburg, PA. The Nicole Chauvet Scholarship Foundation was established to honor Nicole, who was needed in Heaven and left us on November 1, 2009, much sooner than we wanted.
She started dancing at the age of two and began her life as a Cheerleader in second grade. Nicole cheered for Canon-McMillan Elementary and Middle School Football. She was a “Lil Mac Cheerleader” for 7 years and then went on to cheer with the Canon-McMillan High School Cheerleading Squad for 4 years. Cheering was Nicole’s passion and she continued that passion into college where she became a Penn State Cheerleader.
Nicole attended Penn State University (Altoona Campus) majoring in Education. She was very excited about becoming a teacher, and aspired to become a Principal, believing that teaching in general was a very noble profession.
Nicole’s second love was Journalism. She loved to read and proofread, pointing out all the mistakes. Even as a small child, Nicole would choose to go to Barnes and Noble to celebrate her birthdays with the family.
Nicole will be remembered for her loving personality, her contagious smile, her wonderful outlook on life, her free spirit, and most of all the way she touched the lives of so many people. We know she will look down from Heaven with a big smile each time we award a scholarship check in her memory to a deserving student.
