Nic Mon is Bishop Diego’s Scholar Athlete of the Year.
The multi-sport athlete (football, soccer, volleyball) has an impressive resume that includes several school and community activities and school, state and national academic honors. He holds a 4.52 grade point average while taking Advanced Placement chemistry and English. As a junior, he scored the highest test marks in AP physics, government, calculus and statistics.
His goal is to attend Stanford.
“If I had seen his resume before coming here, I would have told him to write a speech for me,” joked football Tom Crawford, who had Mon in his AP government class last year. “The character of Nic and the ability of someone like Nic to do what is right on and off the field really serves as a model for everyone at your school.
“Nic is the backbone of any successful program,” Crawford added. “The more Nic Mons you have, the more games you win and the more academic success you see. We’re thrilled for Nic and want to acknowledge this young man and his fine character.”
