Nick Tudisco is a mature and impressive young man who presents himself very well to everyone. The Huntington High School senior has been excelling after returning to the district following two years at Chaminade.
The teenager is a standout in every possible way and he makes a great impression on folks of all ages. Mr. Tudisco’s membership in Natural Helpers, a group that helps fellow students work through difficult personal and family challenges says a lot about him. He cares about others and is a kind and compassionate soul.
Mr. Tudisco’s top four colleges at this point include Fordham University, Providence University, Boston University and Drexel University in that specific order.
“I have a few different ideas about what I would like to study, but I’m leaning towards philosophy, marketing, political science and journalism as possible majors,” Mr. Tudisco said.
The teenager is one of the best high school wrestlers and football players on Long Island. Mr. Tudisco has made major contributions to both of the Blue Devil programs and he is deeply respected by his teammates and coaches.
Mr. Tudisco’s closest friends include Joe Nicotra, Sarah Giarraputo and Bella Algieri. He is also close to teachers Kristin Fortunato, Joann Ferazi and Suzi Biagi.
“I have been close with Mrs. Fortunato since Finley and even though I’m not taking her Latin class any longer, she has done a lot to help me and she’s always been one of my favorite teachers,” Mr. Tudisco said.
The teenager is especially interested in the Advanced Placement US Government and Politics class he is currently taking because he’s considering pursuing a political science major in college.
“My advice to an incoming freshmen would be to take advantage of all the great people and programs here at Huntington in both sports and school,” Mr. Tudisco said. “I would also tell them to take the time to appreciate their high school experience because it’s over before you know it and soon all you will have left are the memories.”
Mr. Tudisco is hopeful that before his senior year is over, he will be able to suit-up for at least one of the Blue Devil teams that he’s starred on. But with the COVID-19 pandemic still ongoing, that is no sure thing.
“I was uncertain of how it would be going to a new high school for junior and senior year, but Huntington took me in with open arms and I’m so glad I made the decision to come here,” Mr. Tudisco said. “The relationships and memories I have made here mean so much to me and I will have them forever. Huntington has made me who I am and I’m just so glad to be a part of such a special community.”
