Born and raised in West Roxbury, MA, Thomas Huska is a rising senior at Boston Latin School. His great-grandparents left Ireland for the United States, and arrived in Boston in 1918. Since then, Thomas’s family has called the city their home.
From a young age, Thomas has had an appreciation for the importance of community. For several years, he attended Tenacity’s Summer Tennis & Reading Program, offered to Boston’s youth. Since then, Thomas has had the pleasure of contributing to the program himself, both as a volunteer and a Junior Staff Member, giving him the chance to give back to his local community.
At Boston Latin School, Thomas has sought to make the most out of the opportunities that have been given to him. He has always had a love for history and how it helps us to understand others and the world around us. He has also gained an interest in government, politics, and public service. He is an active participant in the school’s extracurricular activities, such as Model United Nations, as well as in athletics, playing football at both the junior varsity and varsity level.
Thomas is excited to have the opportunity to get a firsthand glimpse into public service this summer as a Ward Fellow. He is eager to see how this experience will provide him insights into local government in addition to contributing to one’s community.
