Thomas Sumter Academy Alumni are second to none. Many of them have returned over the years to be teachers, coaches and mentors. Some are doctors, lawyers, businessmen and businesswomen. Some serve in government – local and state. The bottom line is that our Alumni are servant principled leaders – no matter what their vocation or job is, they all serve in one capacity or another.
