Referred to as “PawPa” by dozens of students who he has helped at Point Alternative Center, Harold Thomas, our Giant Alumni of the Month, is a Ross S. Sterling graduate. For the past two years, Mr. Thomas has been instrumental in mentoring and nurturing at-risk students. He has volunteered countless hours in helping to address the drop-out rate as well as the social and emotional well being of students at the Point Alternative Center. While conducting over forty home visits this year, Mr. Thomas has gained the trust and respect of our community. He worked as a lab technician at DuPont refinery for over 40 years before retiring in 2016. He now dedicates his energy to the youth of GCCISD.
