As a Secular Humanist, Nicholas believes in   people and our basic responsibility to do good. Nicholas is a graduate of the United Way’s Board Orientation & Leadership Development program and used that training to serve on the boards of United Cerebral Palsy, The Westwood Civic Association, and Invest in Neighborhoods. Nicholas was also commissioned by Governor Paul Patton into the honorable order of Kentucky Colonels.
