"My experience at Silver Lake College was nothing short of extraordinary."

– Nick Spencer '13, 4th Grade Teacher, Boys Head Basketball Coach

Nick’s Story

Find the right fitHow often did I hear that when I was college shopping? After spending time at two other colleges, I still hadn’t discovered that “fit.” Then I transferred to Silver Lake College, where I immediately felt that connection. Silver Lake College felt like family and I knew I had found that “right fit.”

My experience at Silver Lake College was nothing short of extraordinary. I was given the tools and opportunities to be successful in the professional world. By the time I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education, I had been introduced to local schools and had made countless personal contacts. I am now in my fifth year of teaching fourth grade at Koenig Elementary in Two Rivers and also am the boys head varsity basketball coach at Two Rivers High School. I appreciated my experience at Silver Lake College so much that I am now back pursuing a Master of Arts in Education for administrator leadership.

Your generosity to Silver Lake College has played a major role in my education and that of many others, leading us to successful futures. … I hope we can count on your support now to make a gift to the Silver Lake Fund. Your gift will ensure that students are provided with the academic experiences that will lead them to success in their lives.

Silver Lake College is very special.  As it emphasizes, “Find the extraordinary in you.” This statement has definitely held true for me. Thank you in advance for helping me and so many others receive a quality liberal arts education.

"That chance I took in coming here because of your generosity has changed my life, allowing me to find my spirit once again. I would not have had such possibilities if it weren’t for God’s blessings upon me and upon you. Scholarships have allowed me to be successful. If it had not been for the generosity of others, I wouldn’t be where I am today."
