Name: Justin Nolle
What grade are you in: I’m a sophomore, tenth grade.
Team Status: I do wood fabrication and metal fabrication, though I like to help out with a little bit of everything, I’ve been on the team two years.
Accomplishments: I’m the author of the Froictionary, I got us registered for Hatboro Horsham’s competition (We didn’t realize we had to do it that day until there was only four spots left, I told them a half an hour before it closed).
How has being on Team 5401 impacted your life?: Before I was on the team I didn’t have many friends. I have autism which makes it very hard for me to be social and to talk to new people. Joining the team was by far the best decision I have ever made. If I had not joined right now my entire life would be go home then school and back again with no purpose or meaning. Team 5401 is like a second family to me. I don’t know what I would do without them.
What are your views after highschool? Has being a part of this team affected your way of thinking of the future? If so, how?: I plan on going to college, I want to major in History then become a world history teacher. There’s so much to know about in the world. Being on the team has made me want to strive for more knowledge.
Whats your trademark saying the team knows you by?: “I’m gonna have to fix that.”
