Tommy Awards

The “Tommy” Award — lightheartedly named after Mr. Jefferson in the spirit of contemporary awards (Grammys, Tonys, Emmys etc.) is given to those individuals whose financial and/or time commitments to TJ are far above and beyond the call of volunteerism; to corporations and foundations whose donations of technologies, cash and supplies represent a substantial and significant advancement for TJ’s curriculum activities; and to prominent members of the community who have made a significant contribution to math, science, and technology education.

The “Tommys” are awarded each year at the Partnership Fund’s annual Awards Reception, held to coincide with the School’s tjSTAR research symposium and featuring presentations from select student researchers.
