Our #PromisingFuturesFriday featured student this week is Lochburn Middle School eighth-grader Tutonu S.
His favorite subject is P.E. and he loves playing sports. Tutonu competes on Lochburn’s wrestling team, plays football outside of school and plans to try out for track and field in the spring. He is looking forward to playing football at the high school level next year.
Playing sports has taught Tutonu about discipline, teamwork and self-defense. He is friendly and takes his academics seriously, always making sure to turn in his assignments and attend one of the school’s after-school homework clubs if he needs extra help.
He said what he likes most about Lochburn is the teachers and students. “I can talk to anyone and there are no bullies here,” he said.
Tutonu dreams of playing in the NFL or a career as a car mechanic.
