RD Nicholas Gagner comes to NHTI from New York State, where he received an Associates Degree from Finger Lakes Community College and a BS in Recreation and Leisure Studies Management from the College of Brockport.

If you want to know anything about driving, ask Nick.  He's been a driving school instructor since the age of 17, and spent 11 years driving a limo!  He was also a hall director at SUNY Cobleskill for 2 years before making the move to NHTI.

Although he's a lifelong New Yorker, Nick says he "fell in love with this campus and with New Hampshire" the first time he visited NHTI.  "I knew this was the place to be, the place I could help students grow and learn.  That's my passion."
