CHAGRIN — A Cleveland native and West Geauga High School graduate with a successful acting career returned to his alma mater to visit his former teachers.

Nick Gehlfuss, who currently stars in NBC’s medical drama “Chicago Med,” returned to West Geauga High School, meeting two of his teachers out for lunch to thank them for the impact they had on his life, according to the Geauga County Maple Leaf.
