Grace Nikolski, daughter of Katie Nikolski, Crawford Filtration

Grace, an early riser, often awake before friends and family, dedicates her mornings to the swim team. She never accepts failure as an option and has learned to be a leader to others and put the needs of teammates before her own. She is a Red Cross certified lifeguard and volunteers teaching children to swim. Grace knows it’s an arduous road to becoming Physical Therapist and feels her volunteerism, participation on team sports and strict work ethic has helped teach the dedication needed to succeed in college.

She plans to continue to be a student athlete and leader at Misericordia University to achieve her dream of a doctorate in physical therapy.
