Nick Wagoner

Nick is the direc­tor for Launch Academy’s Life Skills Pro­gramand brings some­thing unique to the com­pany that helps set us apart from every­body else. Hav­ing strug­gled in aca­d­e­mics in high school, he devel­oped new, cre­ative ways to teach him­self the most dif­fi­cult sub­ject areas and used his strengths to com­pen­sate his weak spots. While in col­lege, he orga­nized numer­ous char­ity events, devel­oped new “tra­di­tions” for the whole uni­ver­sity, served in lead­er­ship, and tutored at-risk stu­dents in the very sub­jects he once strug­gled in. His work has been fea­tured on chan­nel 2 news, fox 23, and other sta­tions and he con­tin­ues to help stu­dents develop the same skills that made him into the cur­rent suc­cess story he is today.

Favorite song to get excited to: “Macho Man by The Vil­lage Peo­ple. Gets me every time. haha.”

Fig­ure in his­tory who inspired you: “Def­i­nitely Ben Car­son.  He’s got to have one of the most phe­nom­e­nal suc­cess sto­ries of his­tory, and, after see­ing all the good he’s done and where he came from, he con­tin­ues to inspire me to do great things.”
