"We have created a space in which students and teachers work together

to foster healthy communal attitudes in education... I am a product of my environment,

and as I transition into the collegiate level, Thurston is a part of me that beams.¨

¨Being a leader is what you do when nobody is watching,

going above and beyond for the common good, and putting others before yourself…

I will never forget the doors I walked through from kindergarten to senior year in this district.

I will successfully represent the community of South Redford 

positively wherever my journey takes me and be a proud Thurston Alumni.¨
