Nikacie enrolled at Georgia Military College in January, 2007. She was hired as a math tutor in May of 2007. She stepped up and accepted an appointment as Vice President of the Student Government Association in 2008 after that position became vacant. Her positive attitude, concern for students, and academic excellence caught the attention of the Life Keys Coordinator, who asked her to become a Peer Leader. The same drive and ambition enabled her to be selected as a Peer Resource Officer when the new Fairburn Campus was opened. Nikacie’s academic achievements earned her the honor of an invitation to join the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, and she later became President of the Beta Zeta Alpha Chapter in Atlanta. She will attend Georgia State University in the fall as a pre-med major.
