TMS is celebrating 60 years of Alumni passing through the doors of our schools. Our Alumni have gone on to achieve incredible things, but continue to hold a special place in their hearts for our School and the Community they are a part of.  Below you will see videos from TMS Alumni who have answered a variety of questions.  It is our hope to end our 60 year celebration with 60 of these videos!  Are you TMS Alumni that wants to contribute?
