About the Author

Blake and Bo Nemelka grew up in Utah where they graduated from South Hills Middle School and Riverton High School. They continued their education together at Utah State University where they were selected to be student ambassadors and played for the university tennis team. The brothers each took a hiatus in their education to provide humanitarian service. Blake worked in Lima, Peru, and Bo worked in Merida, Mexico. Upon their return, Blake and Bo continued their education at Utah State University. They were both selected as Huntsman Scholars and graduated with honors from the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business. Blake later attended Vanderbilt University, where he graduated with his Master’s degree in education administration, and Bo attended Yale University where he graduated with his Master’s degree in healthcare management. Blake and Bo are each happily married with young children and continue their love for education in their personal and professional lives.
