Nick Hall likes to keep a full schedule. Recently, he added to his busy agenda by joining the Green Mountain Adaptive Sports Board of Directors.
Nick, 27, has always been a very active and involved community member in his home town of Stowe, Vermont, and more recently in Lyndonville, Vermont, where he now resides. A successful multitasker, he thrives at balancing work, play, and life to the fullest.
While studying at the Stowe High School where he graduated in 2012, Nick made time to work and volunteer in his community, primarily at the Stowe Fire Department where he was a volunteer firefighter for 10 years. He also worked in the kitchens of many of Stowe’s favorite dining establishments.
He completed his Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Diesel Power Technology in 2016 at the Vermont Technical College, and soon after worked as a mechanic at Midstate Hyundai, at Clarks Truck Center, and at Green Mountain Transit.
Nick feels that his organization and operations skills and experience will be great assets to GMAS. “I tend to be a support guy who is willing to help others within my skill level. I used to be a firefighter so if any fire breaks out, I can help put it out,” adds Nick jokingly.
Covid did not slow down Nick’s step, or desire to work and remain active. When the pandemic hit, he moved to Lyndonville, and joined the Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital team as an Emergency Department (ED) Technician. He also filled his extra time working as a lift attendant at Burke Mountain, and as a ranch hand at Forest Dale North.
When asked what he hopes to contribute to GMAS Board, Nick’s answer is pretty straight forward. “I want to give disabled youth a chance to do sports and show that they’re important to a community just like everyone else.”
The Board of Directors is thrilled to have Nick join its team and has already benefited from his ability to help at the Nordic Training recently held at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center. Nick’s desire to contribute time, insight and energy, which he never seems to be short on, will not be wasted at GMAS.
