The folks at Baltimore County Public Schools are posting features of graduating seniors each day through Friday, and today’s feature was on Towson High School’s Tommy King:
Towson High School (Rodgers Forge Elementary, Dumbarton Middle)
Tell us about a teacher, assignment, field trip, or extracurricular activity that had a significant impact on you during your years as a BCPS student?
One of the most significant experiences of my school career has been my time with the Towson High School Mock Trial Team. Since joining the team, I have had the pleasure of working with a great group of people who have helped me develop as both a student and a person and some of my closest friendships have even come out of this program. It would be hard for me to imagine my time in high school without this experience and I am thankful for all it has given me.
During your years as a BCPS student, what did you accomplish that you are most proud of?
One accomplishment that I am particularly proud of is the completion of Towson High School’s production of The Addams Family earlier this spring. This accomplishment is certainly not mine alone, but I am still very proud of the extensive work I put in for the show, especially in the weeks right before it when a combination of unfortunate circumstances and mishaps put the show in serious danger of failure. The show did end up being a success and I am very glad that I was able to do my part in making that happen.
What’s next for you? What are your college or employment plans immediately after graduation?
This fall, I will be attending the University of Maryland, College Park where I will be pursuing a degree in computer engineering as well as participating in the UMD Scholars Program. I hope to eventually obtain a higher level degree following my time at Maryland.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In 10 years, I can see myself running my own business or perhaps pursuing a doctoral degree.
