TMHS history teacher James Marks raises his arms in triumph after turning a cartwheel to begin his teacher address during the graduation ceremony held Sunday, May 23, 2021 at TMHS. Marks said while students may forget what he said, they’ll always remember the cartwheel. In his speech, Marks said the challenging school year had included gifts such as lives saved by distancing, science and technology, personal learning and strength.
