A Step Above: A Step Above – Nick Hatton

Bishop Gorman High School
Class of 2014

Much like his father, Bishop Gorman High School Student Body President Nick Hatton has a passion for restoring old cars. A fitting hobby in his case, as this enterprising and forward thinking young man has always had a strong “drive” to be the best. Self assured and filled with purpose, Nick takes leadership to the next level with far reaching goals that include one day working in the White House, preferably in the Oval Office. Every day is a chance to improve himself a little more and help pass that passion for success on to his friends and classmates. The road ahead may be long, but he isn’t slowing down, and that places Nick Hatton – A Step Above.

G.P.A: 4.08

Nick is Successful Because: “I think that the main thing that makes me successful is my absolute drive to be the best that I can be.  I really live by the fact that ‘You don’t have to be great to get started, but you do have to get started to be great.’ Any opportunity that I get to improve myself, I take because I know that it will ultimately lead to success.”

Nick Looks Up To: “I really look up to my uncle, Rob Groeschen. He is such an inspiration to me because he is always looking for a way to improve the lives of others. Rob has founded a nonprofit organization called InReturn, which provides jobs for those with severe brain damage. Uncle Rob has been a constant guiding force and role model in my life, and I can only hope to do as much good in this world as he does every single day.”

Nick is Stronger and Wiser Because: “One obstacle that I have faced was the passing of my aunt during my freshman year. My aunt was always there no matter what and always wanted me to succeed and be the best that I could. When she passed away, I was sad, but now I realize that she is looking down at me and helping me to overcome other obstacles that I face.”
