Nicolet National Bank Senior Spotlight: Alex DeGrave
Parents: Bonnie and Jeff
Sport: Cross country
You’re interested in becoming a business owner. What kind of business do you think you’d like to get into and why?
I think I would like to get into a service style of business where I am selling a product or service to a consumer. I’m thinking that I would most likely specialize in e-commerce.
Talk a bit about the progress you’ve seen in your abilities as an athlete since you started training seriously:
Since I started training seriously for this year’s cross country season I have made significant drops in my time, four minutes so far this season and I went from never running a varsity race to being 2nd on the team.
You’re also a golfer, another sport where your individual score is rolled into a team effort. What is it about that style of competition (always trying to improve on your own mark, competing against yourself) that appeals to you?
I enjoy always competing with myself because at the end of the day I can always improve whether it’s on my mentality or my time.
As a senior now, how would you describe your style of leadership?
My style of leadership I would say would be extremely direct as to not allow people to mess around too much.
What is your strongest subject in school?
My strongest subject in school would be either math or science.
If you could pick any golf course on the planet to play 18, which one would you pick?
Cape Kidnappers Golf Course.
If you could take a running tour of any city in the world, which would it be?
I would most likely run around Dubai.
What are you looking forward to most about your senior year of athletics at Luxemburg-Casco?
I’d say just looking forward to being the best that I can and to motivate others to hold themselves to a high standard.
