Alexandria Thomas

Penn (William) High School

Nomination Statement

“Alexandria Thomas is the daughter of Joseph Thomas and Dr. Latosha Henderson. She is the captain of William Penn’s Mock Trial team and the president of the Tri-M Music Honor Society. She excels in many subjects, though her favorites are history, English, and music. Though she does not yet know what university she will attend, Alexandria’s post-secondary plans include double-majoring in political science and theater. She hopes to pursue a career in law, and perhaps one day be a politician.”

“I cannot focus on a single area of academic interest. I’m passionate about many things: history, theater, science, music. What motivates me isn’t what I learn, for that is ever-changing, but rather how I learn it. I have always been supported by incredible educators: first, by my mother, Dr. Latosha Henderson. Then, by the teachers, coaches, and staff within the Colonial School District. They’ve acknowledged and nurtured my many passions, including that closest to my heart: my desire to know.”
