Academic All-Star Builds Legacy at Culdesac


KLEW cares about the community. That's why every week we feature students who are excelling both in and out of the classroom.

This week's Academic All-Star is leaving his legacy on Culdesac's high school and community.

Tyson Scrimsher is perhaps the busiest senior at Culdesac High School.

Scrimsher says, "I do trap-shooting at the local club here. I mow lawns, clean gutters. During the summer I do janitorial work for the school."

That's not even the half of it. Tyson is also in FFA, Honor Society, and is ASB President.

When this 3.7 GPA student isn't working on something, he relaxes in the kitchen.

Scrimsher says, "My grandmother got me started on sourdough cooking so every Sunday I make pancakes. And I've been trying bread. That's uh, that's a long process."

He spends most of his time in the school's workshop.

"I really like shop. I like to make stuff," Tyson says.

That may be a bit of an understatement. From a lumber rack to the speaker shelving in the shop, Tyson is known for building projects that give back to his school.

His crowning achievement.... "This is the office sign I made. Took a lot of planning and measurements," he says.

Tyson's love of shop will soon take him to LCSC's workforce training where he'll study to be an electrician. He's also entertaining thoughts of going into law enforcement like his dad.

Wherever he goes, Tyson has surely left a legacy on his hometown.

He says, "It's important to be involved in the school, help take ownership. I've just grown up here my whole life and I want to take care of it for my kids someday."

Congratulations Tyson Scrimsher, you're this week's Academic All-Star.
