Jack Lewis Safety Fund

A longtime family friend, Dr. Jack Lewis inspired many through his work as a physician and passion for life. He was committed to keeping athletes safe and healthy through his over 40-year service as Central High School’s athletic physician. As a tribute to this extraordinary man, the generosity of the Scott Family established the Jack Lewis Safety Fund.

The Jack Lewis Safety Fund awards grants to police, fire, EMS and other nonprofit organizations in rural Nebraska communities that are focused on the safety of others. Grants are awarded through an online application process. To learn more about eligibility, grant requirements and application, please contact Sarah Lopez at
