My Story

Nick remains hospitalized in critical condition today after a hit and run driver struck him and a friend early Sunday morning on Grand Avenue several blocks east of St. Thomas' campus. The students and three others got out of a cab, and a car driving westbound on Grand struck the two students. The car did not stop.
We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when he needs it most.
