This week's Grand Valley Power Student of the Week is an all–star student in the classroom and on the court. As a varsity basketball player and golfer, Grand Junction High School Senior, Blake Nicholson says his schedule is very busy, but he always puts his school work first earning himself a 3 point 8 G.P.A.

"He's the epitome of student athlete. He competes well in basketball and the golf team, not only here in the valley but across the state. He is also exceptional in the class room. He gets great grades too, but he goes above and beyond what it expected of him. He sets the bar really high for himself," says Grand Junction High School Teacher, Steve Woytek.

Blake wants to take his love for sports to the next level. He plans to attend Colorado State University in the fall to pursue a career in Sports Management. His ultimate goal would be to become the assistant coach for the Nuggets.
