Greetings! My name is Shaughn Thomas and I am the AVID Coordinator for THE Lake Olympia Middle School. This is my 5th year as an educator. I have a B.S. in Sales and Marketing and also a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA). I also run an after school club called “Invest in Yourself.” The club is designed to engage and teach our youth about financial literacy. If you would like to see all of the great things we are doing in AVID, visit my YouTube Page: MrThomasInvest.
