“What makes TMHS special to me is that because it’s such a small school, you are able to go to teachers when you need help and they are going to know exactly who you are, even if you haven’t had a teacher in 2 or 3 years.”

What is your dream job? 
I want to major in accounting and possibly minor in sports management. My dream job would be an accountant for a professional sports team.

Who was your favorite teacher or administrator during your time at TMHS? What subject did they teach? What made her or him special?

My favorite teacher would have to be either Mrs. Tupaj or Mr. Duprey. Mrs. Tupaj teaches all business classes and is the reason why I am attending Nichols. She is always willing to help students with high school related issues or figuring out what to do with college. While Mr. Duprey was always that teacher that made everyone in his class laugh with funny remarks or just a simple sigh, he made his classes fun even when the topic wasn’t the most interesting.

What is something about TMHS that people might not know, but should?

Something that people don’t know about TMHS is that everyone gets along with everyone, seniors aren’t as bad as they are portrayed in movies and television and we actually create good bonds with the new freshmen class, especially if they are included in sports and/or clubs.

What advice would you give to next year’s ninth grade students coming to TMHS?

The advice I would give to a freshmen for next year is that if you think you want to play a sport or be in a club then go for it, don’t let nerves prevent you from doing something you enjoy.

What makes TMHS special? Why?

What makes TMHS special to me is that because it’s such a small school, you are able to go to teachers when you need help and they are going to know exactly who you are, even if you haven’t had their class in two or three years. Also, because the school is so small, the sports teams actually need players, so if you go and try out for them, you will most likely make the team and then it will help you get better and you’ll get to make friends.

Evan’s teachers say…

The world is made up of a host of different kinds of students. Some are good at math, some are good at sports, some are good at music and some are good at a combination of many different things. Evan would fall into this last category. He is quite simply a polite and respectful young man who does not consider himself to be special and that, is exactly what makes him special. He is determined to succeed at anything that he is confronted with and more often than not, succeeds.
