Gibbs Die Casting Corporation’s parent company, Koch Enterprise Inc., supports numerous people and community organizations through financial grants in the areas of education, arts, health care, and human services for people in need through no fault of their own. The Koch Foundation is a vehicle that helps accomplish this.
The Foundation also funds the Robert L. Koch and Mary L. Koch college scholarships for children of team members of the Koch companies. These scholarships are awarded in the total amount of $16,000 each. This year the foundation awarded two scholarships, each for $16,000 to cover four years of attendance at an accredited college or university.
Isaiah Jay Nisley, son of Adam Nisley at Gibbs Die Casting, is this year’s recipient of the Robert L. Koch Award. At Mater Dei High School, Isaiah earned his Eagle Scout ranking and serves as comptroller of the student government association. He was recognized as a National Merit Commended Scholar as well as with the University of Evansville Math Award. Isaiah was in the 99th percentile for his ACT scores. Isaiah will study Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University in the fall.
