High school senior Nicholas Thomas has been chosen for the August Student of the Month! We are fortunate to have Nick returning to our computer elective class taught at Hinkley High School in Aurora. Nick was with us during his junior year, and returns as a classroom aide this fall and to take our “Intro to Programming” course this coming spring.
“Nick is an outstanding student whom always strives to do his best,” states KidsTek instructor Steve Kessler, “He is motivated, helpful and always has kind things to say. It has been a pleasure having him in my classes and I am very glad that he is joining us again.”
Nick’s favorite subjects in school are math and computers. Nick has been able to balance work and academics while working part-time at the Vans shoe store at Town Center Mall in Aurora. In his spare time, Nick enjoys playing video games.
Nick plans on majoring in computer programming or engineering in college. He says, “KidsTek was the greatest opportunity I have received all four years of high school. I am grateful that each staff member has personally gone out of their way to benefit me for my future career in the tech field.”
