Kacey Nichols has moved quite a bit in her life, living in Nevada at one point and attending three different high schools. Now, movement is something that is now a future career interest as Nichols’ career aspiration is to become a weather broadcaster and predict the movements of Mother Nature.

“I find the weather interesting,” Kacey said. “I think I get it from my dad. He used to go as close to tornados as he possibly could.”

Kacey plans to transfer to Illinois State University to study journalism after completing her Associate of Science degree at Moraine Valley.
