Dr. Tom has been a huge success in our schools for many years with his “Character That Counts” program. The children really enjoyed the program. They learned while being entertained.
The values of honesty, perseverance, and all of the other core values the students learn as part of the character education program are highlighted and illuminated beautifully in Dr. Tom’s performance.I highly recommend his performance.
