Congratulations Super Seniors!

Click here to view their profiles…Congratulations Super Seniors! Every year, Tourtellotte Memorial High School produces adventurous, amazingly talented, and intelligent graduates. Some are headed out into the workforce, some are joining the military, and some are headed to college or technical school. Every one is unique and special. High school life at TMHS is not just about good grades, great athletic achievements, or artistic accomplishments. It’s also about epitomizing what we at TMHS call “Tiger Pride”: Demonstrating leadership when no one else is watching and making quiet contributions toward classmates. And sometimes, it’s just about the way students go about their day, in their own way, every day for the past four years. In short, it’s about Academic Achievement, Respect, Responsibility, and Success. Every member of the Class of 2017 has a story to tell about their last four years, advice to give incoming freshmen, a shout out to give to a teacher who inspired them, and a plan for future success in life. Here are a few such stories from our...

TMHS Senior, Sophia Prouty Gives Keynote at Junior Achievement Breakfast

Tourtellotte Memorial High School Senior Gives Keynote at Junior Achievement Breakfast Senior Sophia Prouty is First Ever Thompson Student to Speak at Event HARTFORD – When she first participated in Junior Achievement in the fourth grade, Sophia Prouty never imagined she would be speaking in front of a room full of Connecticut business leaders. On Friday, Prouty did just that, relating her Junior Achievement experience in her keynote address at the Junior Achievement of Southwest Connecticut annual fundraising breakfast. “When I was a fourth grader, Mrs. Tupaj would always encourage me and I wanted to be one of the high school mentors when I was older,” said Prouty, a member of Tourtellotte Memorial High School’s Class of 2017.  “Now, as a senior in high school, it’s my turn to teach the next general of Junior Achievement leaders.” Prouty was selected to deliver the keynote address based on her time in the Junior Achievement program, in which she participated in corporate field trips. Networking, and student mentoring programs. She plans on attending Nichols College in the fall to study marketing and communications. She credits this decision to her teachers and the opportunities she’s had along the way in the Thompson school district, especially through the district’s Junior Achievement program. “If it weren’t for the opportunities at my elementary, middle, and high schools, I’m not sure I would have discovered a love of business that I want to follow through on,” Prouty said. Tourtellotte Memorial High School is a public secondary school serving 251 students in 9th through 12th grade. Located in the town of North Grosvenordale, CT it is part...
