In showing his love for what he does, he allows his students to feed off his excitement. In observing his care for teaching and his students, Mr. Boyd has inspired me to pursue a career that I am passionate and excited about.”
Boyd commented, “Thomas is a very determined young man. He’s an absolute pleasure to have in class. He is going to do some amazing things.”
After graduation, Duvall plans to attend college to major in an engineering field. He is the son of Chuck and Jennifer Duvall of London.
