About Nick

I am currently an adjunct instructor of history at Belhaven University in their Adult Education department. Many of my students do not like history because their previous experience has been simply memorizing dates and people. We focus on why something mattered and why we are taking the time to remember an event.

I call these "tipping points" and we think through what would have happened if a battle had a different outcome or a queen would have died sooner or an election was won or lost.

If a student can't tell me why something is important or what difference it makes then I have not done my job.

I have a Master's Degree in History from Mississippi College and a double-major undergraduate in history and political science from MC as well. I was appointed by the President of the United States to run a federal agency in Mississippi and have served at state and local levels of government for over 25 years. This gives me a great perspective and experience in government, political science, and history.

I love to teach and enjoy helping others learn more about their world.
