Nick Fugate did not want to come to Mountain View but we are all glad he did. At Mountain View, he quietly succeeded. He attended class consistently, turned in superior work with little fanfare and drama, and built connections with students and faculty. He did whatever anyone asked of him and he connected with his teachers. In other words, he “bought in” to Mt. View. A large part of the buy-in was learning executive functioning skills, which he credits with teaching him how to think, how to go about his work, and how set up a plan to approach a task. This knowledge, coupled with his quiet determined manner convinced his teachers that Nick has the potential to make an impact on his community by improving his life and the lives of those that surround him. Congratulations Nick.
