DETROIT – The son of a landscaper, Noah Nicklin has never been afraid to get his hands dirty.
“He makes us do our fair share of work around the house,” Nicklin said, referring to his father, Thomas. “But I will say he’s never made us do it alone. He’s always right there with us.”
So, when Nicklin received word that he was named one of the brightest and hardest-working scholars at Wayne State University, he wanted to immediately share the news with his dad.
Brothers Noah Nicklin (73) and Max Nicklin (83) are teammates on the Wayne State football team. They credit their success to the support of their family (L-R), mom, Karen, sister, Natalie, and dad, Thomas.
“That was a good phone call to make,” said Nicklin, who was selected to this year’s Mike Ilitch School of Business 25 Under 25. “Obviously, mom and dad love hearing stuff like that.”
