Former ‘Deadliest Catch’ cast member to speak at EJHS

COCOLAMUS — Nick “Sunshine” Tokman, who was a four-year cast member on the Discovery Channel TV series “Deadliest Catch,” will speak to East Juniata High School students on March 23.

Tokman will share his story of how he went from initially seeing the Northwestern on TV to boarding the very same boat that compelled him to try crab fishing in Alaska.

Tokman will discuss the struggles he went through trying to land a commercial fishing job in Alaska, including homelessness, as well as why he left the show and a six-figure job offer–to pursue his calling as a youth speaker. His objective is to build self-worth in students so they focus on who they are and their life goals.

There will be two presentations along with question-and-answer sessions and an opportunity for students to take pictures and receive autographs from Tokman. The first session will be from 8:45 to 10:55 a.m. for the students.
