Patuxent Appeal Campus Educational Support Person of the Year: Roger (TJ) Thacker

“With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility”
Spiderman used these words to capture the definition of a hero.

Spiderman would be proud of PAC’s Support Person of the Year, TJ Thacker. Mr. Thacker realizes the power and impact he has in his role as Assistant Head Building Service Manager. He accepts his responsibility to create an environment that is safe, inviting, and conducive to student learning. 

His hero status is earned by his willingness to go above and beyond to support PAC students and staff. 
• Does someone need something set-up or moved? No Problem – Mr. Thacker is there to help! 
• Would students benefit from a personal mentor? Mr. Thacker gives of his time to work with children on the basketball court! 
• Did someone see a child with holes in the soles of his shoes? Mr. Thacker to the rescue as he purchases a new pair of shoes and enjoys the joy as the child opens his anonymous gift! 

Those privileged to work beside Mr. Thacker are positively influenced by his strong work ethic, his dedication to help others, and his sincere humility. Congratulations, TJ, on this well-deserved honor!
