NSU recently hosted the annual Celebration of Excellence banquet at the Rick Case Arena at the Don Taft University Center where philanthropists and business leaders Rita and Rick Case were awarded the university’s highest honor, the President’s Community Award.

The award supports NSU’s “community” core value and encourages the ongoing pursuit of community service. Rita and Rick Case created the Rita and Rick Case Endowed Scholarship, which provides undergraduate students and former members of the Boys & Girls Clubs with an opportunity to attend college. So far this academic year, NSU has three scholarship recipients, all alumni of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County.

Mr. Case has served on NSU’s Board of Trustees since 2002.  He has served on the Building and Grounds Committee that has directed the use of more than $100 million representing more than 1 million square feet of structure development and grounds improvement for the university.

With support from Rita and Rick Case, a community of 77 affordable homes (called “A Rick Case Habitat Community”) broke ground in 2018.  The new community will provide home ownership to low-income families in Pompano Beach.  It is the largest project to-date for Habitat for Humanity of Broward County.

Since 1982, more than 100,000 donated bikes have reached children during the holidays in South Florida, Cleveland, and Atlanta, through the “Rick Case Bikes for Kids” program.
