Nominated by school counselor Lindsay Hayes, Cherry shows extraordinary determination. “Nicole is a very smart, hardworking student who is near the top of her class in rank. But, much more than that, she is one of the most kind-hearted, friendly, compassionate people I know. Although she has endured much hardship, Nicole is determined to go to college and be successful in life.”
