Grace Harvey and Lilly Hodge – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) –  LRHS Principal Craig Little has created a Mustang Faculty Award, a way to recognize the hard work of staff members and teachers.

The Mustang Faculty Award will travel from teacher to teacher on a monthly basis

This month’s award, the first ever, went to science teacher and boys cross country coach Bryan Thomas.  Little said Thomas is a driven teacher who always puts his students’ education first.

Next month Thomas will award the honor to another teacher, who isn’t in his department.

Thomas has teaching at LRHS since the school opened, is an avid sports fan.

“It is nice to get some recognition,” Thomas said, “because everyone is working hard”.

Little has worked with Thomas since 2001, he has looked up to him since the very first day.

“I felt that I could look up to him since the beginning of my journey when I started out as a teacher, and now as I’m the Principal,” said Little.
