Thomas Nelson is a testament to the values that guide our school. During his fifty-one years, he was a farmer, a scholar, a civic leader, and a general who fought for the eventual independence of the United States. Thomas Nelson’s life was in service to the ideals of personal liberty and opportunity that we intend to sustain within our local Nelson County community. Further, Mr. Nelson’s selfless nature and commitment to supporting others act as a model of citizenship to which we may all aspire. We look at Thomas Nelson’s life as the impetus behind our leader values and vision. To this end, Thomas Nelson High School will serve many thousands of students in our lifetime and each one of them deserves the right to a rigorous education characterized by meaningful career and college preparation. In doing so, we will intentionally create happy, informed, and productive citizens to sustain our local community.
