Quote from teacher: “Nolan is an extremely hard working student who has achieved great success during his high school career,” said Mark Figliomeni, science teacher. “A true scholar, Nolan will finish high school ranked at the top of a very large graduating class. While achieving at a high level within the classroom, it is what Nolan did outside of school that made him the truly impressive young man he has become. Although active as an underclassman, it was during his junior year that Nolan found the theater and the ‘acting bug’ has had a hold of him ever since. His commitment to be an actor - with its tremendous time obligations - while maintaining his high academic performance is a testament to his maturity and self-motivation that separates him from his peers. He has always had his priorities in order and is an example of all that is good and positive in his generation.”
