Celebrating Nick Geiser Day
How many people can say that they have had a day officially named after them? At least one senior at SLUH can answer that affirmatively.
Nick Geiser ’13 was honored at Manchester’s town hall meeting on April 1 by Mayor David Wilson, who officially proclaimed it Nick Geiser Day. It was not an April Fool’s joke, but rather an occasion to honor Geiser for his marked academic performance.
Geiser earned a top score of 36 on the ACT in 2012 on just his second attempt at taking the test (he earned a 35 the first time). He says he took Mr. Hannick’s prep course to help him study for the test.
“It was the first town hall meeting I’d ever attended,” says Geiser of the event marking Nick Geiser Day. “It was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed it.”
According to Geiser, an alderwoman for the Town of Manchester is a parishioner at St. Joseph’s Parish, where he attends, and she knew of his top ACT score and proposed Nick Geiser Day to the Board of Aldermen.
In addition to excelling in his academic coursework, Geiser served as co-captain of the wrestling team this past winter and earned a 29-12 record. He will be attending Fordham University in the fall and plans to study math or physics.
