Tell us about the teacher, coach or administrator who made a difference in your life: My cross country coach, Mr. Samuel Tamo, has had a major impact on my life both on and off the course. I could always count on Coach Tamo to bring an unmatched passion into his teaching and coaching. Whether he was chasing us down on his bike during long runs or giving the team a fiery pep talk before a meet, Coach Tamo’s contagious energy showed me the importance of being an enthusiastic leader and scholar in all aspects of my own life.
