Good day to you!
My name is Nic Wilson and I'm a proud Bitterroot Valley native who's nieces have created our 5th-generation strong, Montana family! I was born in Hamilton, MT and since day-1, I attended Corvallis grade & high school, until my senior year graduating from Hamilton High in 2004.
My adult career started overseas stationed at Kadena AFB, Okinawa, Japan as an active duty Air Force, Crash-Fire-Rescue and EMT. I was honorably discharged in 2008. My higher education started at the Louis F. Garland military fire academy, accrediting my fire science degree based out of Texas. I also hold an associates degree from Portland Community College in Aviation Science, with a private helicopter rating out of Hillsboro Aviation, Oregon. With 166 logged flight hours in a Robinson R-22. My next educational chapter took place right here at the University of Montana, where I earned their Business Entertainment Management certificate, with a minor in Media Arts and event planning. . . GO GRIZ!!
I have been an active Boys and Girls Club of Missoula County Board member since 2015. As of first quarter 2017, I was voted in and awarded the Board President position and leadership responsibilities of 5 Missoula County Club locations. This was honorably handed down and with all respects from our previous President, Trisha Sheperd. Who is still heavily involved and sits with us as a key component to the BGCM Board of Directors.
My dream and personal mission statement for Missoula County and the Bitterroot Valley areas: I vow to perpetually cultivate an unwavering step in the right direction in order to reach out and make sure ALL of our rural children have a safe learning environment to hang out at and simply just be kids when their parental guardian(s) are working. A Club that is fun-loving and cool to be involved with, a place with leaders and mentors that actually care what happens to them through their fragile growing years. Simply put, I will strive to create a positive setting in order to make sure our children of yesterday, our leaders of today, and our Presidents and CEO's of tomorrow, maintain a safe life trajectory! Right up until we help make sure they graduate from high school, still keeping them on their steady college and career dreams!
You have my word on helping to introduce new programs and new Clubs to our rural communities and children. So if you know of a way to help. . . Please, please don't ever hesitate to call! We need you!
