Now that the pandemic is somewhat behind us, we are happy to announce that we are once again honoring an Arapahoe High School Student of the Quarter.

Congratulations to this quarter's student -- Sam Thompson.

Sam is not your typical high school senior working his way towards graduation in 2022.  In 2018, Sam lost his father, Doug Thompson, to leukemia. Sam decided he wanted to honor his father's legacy and set up his own charity to help fight blood cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma. His solution  - turn his passion for running into an opportunity to raise money for LLS in the fight to eradicate these blood-borne diseases. As if that's not enough, Sam is one of the top students at Arapahoe High School and maintains a GPA of over 4.26.
