The keynote address at THS’s graduation will be given by Scott Takahashi, a Vietnam veteran and the son of a WWII member of the famous "Go For Broke" 100th battalion that was comprised of patriotic Japanese-Americans who backed their loyalty and dedication to the United States with personal commitment and sacrifice.

“This presentation underscores a commitment at THS to support the values upon which this country was founded, and further supports the education of our children to become critical thinkers and leaders,” said Sandi Passalacqua, THS Founder and head of the schoo.
