Quote from teacher: “Tymeshia is a model student that sets the bar high for herself and her peers,” said Robb Slusser, assistant principal/SAB advisor. “She is determined, self-motivated, and a proven leader both in the classroom and on the track. She is a role model for all students and helps others to reach their goals.”
