Founder & Executive Director
Fleece & Thank You

Goodness, discipline, and knowledge. Believe it or not (and I hope you DO believe it), I legitimately say these words on a monthly basis in meetings. These three values were ingrained in me at CC, and I cite the presence of these core values to most of the success I achieve. For as incredible as CC was to ready me for the rigors of college and beyond academically, I am so lucky to have gone to a high school where I was prepared to tackle the world with goodness, discipline, and knowledge as part of my being.
Nick Kristock, the Founder and Executive Director of Fleece & Thank You.
