Tandem Honors 2014 Paneno Scholarship Winner Nehemiah Winston

Tandem Properties is proud to have awarded their 2014 Sam Paneno football scholarship on Sunday, March 2nd to UC Davis Aggie football player Nehemiah Winston (seen to the left with head coach Ron Gould, parents John and Tina, and Tandem Properties manager Shari Houston) at UC Davis’ annual “Legacy Dinner.”

Tandem’s scholarship is named after Sam Paneno, a former Tandem resident and Aggie football player. In 1999, Paneno was a reserve running back in a game against Western Oregon. During the course of the game he dislocated his right knee, and severed an artery. Several days later the leg had to be amputated. Paneno’s positive attitude during this ordeal became an inspiration to many, and Tandem continues to honor their former resident with a scholarship each year.

Athletes like Nehemiah and Sam are why Tandem is so proud to support UC Davis Aggie Athletics. Photo courtesy of the UC Davis Athletics Facebook page.
