School: Central Catholic
You wouldn’t know it now, but Nick Huber was bed-ridden for two years. In 2009, Nick fell victim to Autonomic Dysfunction, a virus which attacks the nervous system, and which left him unable to attend school. Nick went undiagnosed for a year and a half until he was finally sent to the Mayo Clinic and then to the Ronald McDonald house where he fully recovered. In spite of that illness, which caused him to miss most of 8th grade and his freshman year of high school, Nick went on to become an honor student, catching up on all his school work and now attending AP classes as a junior at Central Catholic.
Nick is not only the CCHS ASB treasurer, he is a member of the Key club, the debate team, and both the football and track teams. But Nick’s biggest satisfaction comes from helping others. He has served as a counselor at Bible School, a volunteer for the Boy Scout food drives, and every week still finds time to help out his elderly neighbors.
The principal who nominated Nick calls him “an upstanding Christian man who is always positive and who always looks to the future”. It is the determination and vision of amazing teens like Nick that inspire his peers to never give up and never lose hope for a better tomorrow.
