He currently attends Flint Southwestern High School as an overachiever. He’s part of the National Honor Society, is actively involved with his church, and dance studio – as well as being an entrepreneur and activist.
Thomas was focused on uniting T-K’s diverse families as soon as he took over as principal, hosting several multi-cultural events to foster camaraderie and education. Additionally, Thomas served on various community organizations’ boards. His work focused on improving rural livelihoods such as market- and food-systems while making them more inclusive regardless of ethnicity or socioeconomic status.

TK considers himself to be an overachiever. He’s involved with school sports, dance team practices, church services and national sorority membership. Furthermore, TK is in a relationship with Sadie while co-producing a film with Wes.
TK has over three years of international development experience, specializing in private sector development with positive social and economic effects. His vast knowledge of market and food systems enables him to identify risks for local communities’ benefit and mitigate them with precision. Furthermore, TK possesses extensive knowledge on issues surrounding gender equity and poverty reduction.
Thomas’ art showcases “the artistic fulfillment he has found since being released from years of censorship. His pieces can be described as structural, engraved like solid materials and featuring dramatic harmony softened at times by subtle shadowing effects.”
Thomas’ paintings from the 1970s captured the vastness and grandeur of Canadian landscape. As Thomas developed a slather approach to painting, colors would deepen and thicken over time; reddish brown images from east-end row houses and Verdun became organic while water transformed into an astounding spectacle of golds and crimsons.
TK is Birdie Kaye’s younger brother and best friend Rhyme’s. He works very hard and enjoys many interests; additionally he’s an outstanding guitarist.
