Liberty Tax® salutes Mr. Nick Goepper, Bronze Medalist for the 2014 men’s slopestyle skiing. Nineteen-year-old Nick is the son of our very own Liberty Tax® owner Linda Goepper of Lawrenceburg, Indiana.

The Liberty Tax® family has followed Nick on his path to winning Gold at the XGames and then heading to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. During the 2013 Liberty Tax® Annual Convention, Nick came to speak and to thank Liberty Tax® CEO John Hewitt and the entire Liberty family for helping to make this young man’s skiing dreams come true. Nick’s Liberty Tax® family has cheered him from across the nation. We share the overwhelming pride his parents must feel.

“Congratulations, Nick. You are a true entrepreneur and an amazing role model for Americans everywhere. You have proven that when you believe in something, you can achieve it. We are so thankful of the sacrifices you and your family made in order to represent the United States during such a historic moment,” stated John Hewitt.

For only the third time in history, the U.S. swept the medals stand for the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi.
