Nicholas Dworet

Age 17

Parkland, Florida

Diving into the hearts of many

He was a thoughtful young man with a passion for swimming. As captain of the school swim team, he could always be counted on to lead the team to victory.

He was a loving boyfriend, caring friend and cherished son. He lifted the spirits of those around him with his infectious smile and positive attitude. He was offered a scholarship to swim for the University of Indianapolis, putting him one step closer to achieving his dream of competing in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

Nicholas Dworet, 17, was shot and killed on Feb. 14, 2018, in his Holocaust history class at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
