The guardian of 16-year-old honor roll student, Ms. Tomah L. Moore Toe, has expressed appreciation to the administration of the Levi C. Williams High School for graduating students from the 12th grade as young as sixteen years old.
At a family celebration on Saturday July 9 for Tomah’s achievement at the family’s residence in Thinkers Village, outside Monrovia, guardian Sando Moore, publisher and managing editor of IMAGES magazine, said the school has led the vanguard to put out young graduates who are able to earn their college degrees at age 24 or 26.
“From the time I registered my daughter at the school I have always had the belief that something good was going on at Levi Williams and I am satisfied with Tomah’s achievement,” Mr. Moore said, during a gathering of family, friends and the school’s staff.
He noted with pride that Tomah at age 16 graduated from the school as a salutatorian with an 88.4 Average.
“She has been on the Honor Roll list since she entered Levi from kindergarten and I want to congratulate her,” Moore indicated to cheers from the gathering.
He added that his daughter’s ambition is to become a neurosurgeon, which is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of disorders of the central and peripheral nervous system including congenital anomalies, trauma, tumors, vascular disorders, infections of the brain or spine, stroke, or degenerative diseases of the spine.
Moore said his daughter’s success was due to self-discipline and the young woman’s focus on what she wants in life.
“We get on issues sometimes but I must state here that I don’t ask Tomah to do her lessons,” Moore said, adding that “sometimes she stays awake up to 4 a.m. over her lessons.”
Moore added that he is gratified as a father for his daughter to know what she wants and not having to be told.
He used the occasion to heap praises on the administration and staff of Levi C. Williams High School for putting out students who are able to choose what they want and as a result warm the hearts of their parents.
Earlier the school’s principal, Mrs. Vivian Toby, expressed gratitude for having had Tomah at the school from the kindergarten stage to the completion of her high school education and thanked the parents for their trust in the school.
