“I am very grateful for these opportunities and thankful that the TMSA community has supported me throughout my journey. I’ve been in TMSA since second grade (a decade now) and it was the perfect place for me to excel, thrive, and grow as a person; it was the perfect place for me to make sustainable impacts to my community and gain the Park Scholarship and National Merit Finalist,” said Harvik in gratitude and appreciation to his recent achievements.

TMSA Triangle High School Principal Adam Alden expressed his heartfelt congratulations to Harvik and said “his dedication and hard work have earned him well-deserved recognition as a Park Scholar and National Merit Scholarship Finalist.
