Athlete, Scholar, and Netflix-lover Nick Algeo discusses his background and goals for the future.
Out of the many gifted young students in the Class of 2015, Algeo stands out. He is a member of several clubs, sports, and activities all within the ring road of Malvern’s campus.
Q: Where are you from? What’s your background?
A: I lived in Upper Darby for a couple of years in my life. I went to St. Lawrence right on West Chester Pike. I later moved to Havertown while I was in the third grade, staying at St. Lawrence, and in sixth grade I came to Malvern Prep and have been here ever since.
Q: What kind of activities are you involved in at Malvern?
A: I am a MECO leader. I am on the winter and spring Track & Field team – I high jump and triple jump. I am a member of the National Honor Society, Adelphia Society, and Academic Competition team. I am also a proud member of the Drumline.
Q: Would you consider your Malvern career to be successful?
A: Yes, I would say it has been pretty successful. It has been a great experience for me, and Malvern has been like a second home to me.
Q: What do you like to do outside of school?
A: I really love hanging out with my family. I know a lot of people say that, but I honestly enjoy being with family and friends. I try to get out and be as active as possible. I also like to have a couple of “chill” nights – hanging out, watching Netflix and eating ice cream.
Q: What is your biggest goal for this year?
A: For this year, I would really like to get into Notre Dame. It has been my dream school since I was about four, and it would mean a lot to me if I got in. I don’t know if I will be able to go, but it’s something I am really hopeful for.
Q: Do you have any post-Malvern or even post-college goals?
A: Well, I don’t have a concrete goal set in place right now. I want to be able to primarily make myself and those around me happy. I’m just trying to find my place in the world.
