Troy and Angela Nelson

Troy and Angela Nelson operate a small family farm in Palermo, Maine that has been in the Nelson family for generations. They have two children, Alicia and Royce. Alicia, a sophomore, currently attends the private, non-religious Erskine Academy, while Royce, a seventh-grader, attends Temple Academy, a private, Christian school located in nearby Waterville. Royce will continue to attend Temple when he begins high school, but because Temple is a religious school, the Nelsons will not be eligible to receive tuition from the town for Royce’s tuition, even though they do receive tuition for Alicia while she attends Erskine Academy.
