Last night, the "ladies" of THS competed in the Fourth Annual Cinderfella Pageant. This not-so-beauty pageant is for the guys to strut their stuff in a variety of categories, such as date wear, talent, formal wear, photogenic and on-stage interview.
Tristen Hatchett, aka Miss Satine Diamond, was the winner of the "Dang! I Look Good" (Photogenic) category and was crowned as the 2013 Cinderfella. Other winners include the following: Kodi Robertson, aka Miss Kodisha Tokenowa--Mr. Nice Guy; Don Qui Qui, aka Don Lundy--2nd Runner-Up; and Miss Brittany-Lynn-Marie-Lynn, aka Trent Tidwell.
Congratulations to our "lovely ladies."
Ava Andrews is this week's "I Am the Difference" teacher. Sophomore Michael Giddins nominated Andrews for the award.
Giddins said, "She makes math more fun."
Andrews was honored to receive this award. "I love teaching at Thompson because I love working with the kids and I really enjoy making connections to the real world," she said. "Hopefully they learn things that they can use in the future."
Andrews teaches Algebra II, AP Statistics and Algabraeic Connections. She is also a math coach.
This week’s Spotlight Student is Quyen Khong. Khong is a junior and was nominated by former AP Biology teacher Desaree Jackson. She participates in AP classes and is in the choir.
History teacher Glenda Smitherman believes that Khong deserves the honor because of her overall engagement in class.
Smitherman is not the only teacher who has recognized Khong’s hard work. Coach Bruce Hill and A-P English teacher Crystal Lamar both notice Khong’s work in the classroom and her respect for others.
Lamar said, "Quyen is a hard worker and is always respectful and polite to her classmates and teachers."
Coach Hill said that Quyen is a "phenomenal student and always has a great attitude. Certainly a pleasure to have in class!"
Khong says that she is honored to receive the award, and that she always tries to do her best. After graduation next year, Khong plans to attend Medical School.
