Nicholas Koehler is Nicolet Bank Scholar of the Month

Nicolas Koehler, NDA 2019, has been selected as the Nicolet National Bank Triton Scholar of the Month for May 2019. The Nicolet National Bank Triton Scholar of the Month is selected at random among the Tritons of the Week for each month.

"I am appreciative of both the recognition and the cash prize. I did not expect this award at all, so this was a pleasant surprise," said Koehler.

Koehler's parents are Kurt Koehler and Lisa Vanden Branden. His siblings are Alex Koehler, NDA 2016, and Graham Koehler, NDA 2025.

As the Nicolet National Bank Triton Scholar of the Month, Koehler will receive a $50 gift. Nicolet Bank has also generously donated $2,500 to NDA to continue to support the academic successes of its students.


Nicholas Koehler, NDA 2019, is Triton of the Week for the week of May 13, 2019.

Doug Guyette, NDA math instructor, said, "Nick's strengths are his social skills and his enthusiasm for quality learning. He gets along well with his peers and teachers."

With passion for learning about history and politics, Koehler was a member of the football team and Model UN during his time at NDA.

Guyette explained that Koehler dives deeply into his interests. "If he finds a subject or a topic that interests him, usually history or politics, he will make himself an expert by absorbing all there is to learn on the subject."

This quality will serve him well at the University of Utah, where he will study next fall.

Further, Koehler possess strong interpersonal skills. Guyette shared that Koehler is easy to engage in conversation and often has unique perspectives on the world as he sees it.

Finally, Koehler has taken it upon himself to help his good friend, James Bosco, following an accident last year. "Koehler serves as a friend and anchor of normalcy," said Guyette.
