The friends and family of Nicholas will have the opportunity to serve at Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park. Here volunteers will be making a difference by helping to restore the park and clean up the beach area. We hope to create a beautiful area for all residents and visitors to partake in one of Nicholas' favorite activities; swimming.
Nicholas was known as a leader and friend to all "He was always known as a very lovable person. He would always say 'I love you!' hug you and kiss you," Annika Dworet said. "In the swim club, he would always speak to the quiet kids, not just the ones he was having fun with."
"I used to look up to him," MSD swim team member Patrick Franzino said. "When I first came here, he was the fastest swimmer, and every time he lapped me, he would say 'that's ok bud.' he always motivated me to become a better person and swimmer."
About Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park: The name of this beautiful and historic beachside park honors the two Civil Rights Movement leaders who led peaceful protests to desegregate this beach and others, making them accessible for all people to enjoy. Visitors enjoy swimming, fishing, hiking, boating and relaxing along its peaceful Atlantic shores.
