He was a member of Boy Scout Troop 27 and is a member of Venture Scouts 2027. Both are sponsored by Ottawa Hills High School Parent Teacher Organization.
Nicholas' Eagle Scout project was centered around the Ottawa Hills Elementary School, where he assembled and installed two full-size benches in a high traffic-waiting area, worked with a local landscape designer to create a garden, and acquired and planted vegetation and stepping stones to improve the scenery and functionality of the location. He also raised the money through various means to fund his project.
He has been active in scouting for ten years. He traveled on two high adventure Boy Scout trips with his troop. He was the boat crew leader on a trek with Troop 27 to Sea Base, a High Adventure Boy Scout Camp in the Florida Keys, and crew leader on a trek with Venture Scouts 2027 to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico.
