In his 22 years on this earth, Nick made a surprisingly great impact on those who knew him—and even some who didn’t. Born and raised in Baltimore, Nick attended Lida Lee Tall Learning Resources Center, Ruxton Country School and, finally, Boys’ Latin, from which he graduated in 2001. Most BL grads go on to college, but Nick had a different goal in mind. From the time he began high school, he wanted to be a Marine, to ensure that what he loved about Maryland would still be here for his children and grandchildren.
