Success comes in many forms, as seen with this week's Alumni Spotlight of Tom Elliot '10. Following graduation from Grand River Academy, Tom took a unique path that allowed him to pursue his passion of the outdoors. He is currently a professional arborist in Cleveland and loves tending to the natural landscape in our region. In his spare time Tom enjoys camping, hiking, kayaking, and traveling too in places such as Arizona, Utah, Colorado.
Some of Tom's fondest memories of GRA include, "the interaction between teachers and students that you don't get that anywhere else. They're always more than happy to help you out and make sure you succeed. Oh the student center pizza is a must!" As Tom explained, "I miss the dorm life. I met some amazing folks at my time at GRA."
Tom's advice to current students is to take advantage of having teachers that live on campus and to see them as the valuable resource they are to have. He has been in touch with several classmates over the years but would be excited to hear back from more in the coming weeks. If you would like to get in touch with Tom, fellow GRA alumni, or be featured on David's Desk, please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
