My name is Nick Asante and my story starts far before my time in MCPS. I was born in the beautiful country of Ghana, located in the African West Coast. During the early years of my childhood, I lived with grandma, an elementary school teacher, and grandpa, a local college admissions officer. Growing up, they instilled the importance of high-quality education for everyone, regardless of who they were and where they came from.
When I was four years old, my family and I moved to the United States. My parents decided to move to Montgomery County because of the large number of opportunities. They knew that one staple of the county was its high-quality education system, which catered to the needs of all its students. My educational experience in the county started with Pre-K at South Lake Elementary School. Since then, I’ve attended Summit Hall Elementary School, Ronald McNair Elementary School, Roberto Clemente Middle School, and now Richard Montgomery High School.
