Shae Nicolaisen

Desert Vista High School

4A-6A Scholar Athlete Finalist

Senior Swim team captain Shae from Desert Vista High School lead her team to win the 2016 State Championship. She also was a individual state champ several times over who was on the Varsity team all four years of her high school career. Academically, Shae is a straight-A student with a 4.0 GPA who took eight AP courses and numerous honors courses. Shae was chosen as Team MVP all four years, and was a 2x individual state champion and a part of a state team championship in 2016. She also competes for her club swim team, Scottsdale Aquatic Club, during the school year, where she has qualified for the 2016 Olympic Trials and has won Junior National Championships.

The most impressive accomplishment was help found the non-profit "Feed my City", which is dedicated to help alleviate the effects of hunger in the Phoenix area by facilitating the donation of the leftover food from local restaurants to nearby food banks. Her ability to manage her sport and her rigorous academic load is impressive, as she handles it with an unassuming and quiet confidence that makes it look easy.

Shae will be attending Duke University to study biology and medicine.
