Anthony "Logan" Tucker, also known as LT by his friends and teammates, is a young man of few words but has demonstrated time and time again that his actions speak louder. Brian Facemire shared, "On the field, Logan led by example and was an integral piece of our back-to-back championships." In the classroom, Greg Angilly comments, "Having the opportunity to teach and learn from Logan has been one of my favorite experiences of this school year. When he speaks, you should listen as he's a man of substance and class. I will miss his kind presence on this campus quite a bit next year!". Friend George Selemaj describes Logan as "one of the most genuine people I have ever met."
Logan continues to be a man of action even in his free time. He established two well-known organizations during his high school career. He introduced Pajama Jams, which became a CHC multidivisional fundraiser that encouraged teachers and students to donate pajamas for children in the local area. When he graduates, he will pass the torch to his sister Olivia and hopes to keep CHC involved with the group. About two years ago, Logan created a summer business called LT Services. Using his entrepreneurial skills, he recruited friends to help him mow, mulch, and clean lawns. Who knew in our backyard, Logan was organizing a thriving business with 40-60 customers and 20 regulars. With college and internships approaching on the horizon, LT Services will be run by fellow manager Landon Clay, maybe with Logan as a consultant.
Different from his experience freshmen year, Logan felt attending CHC allowed him to gain confidence in himself and his ability to take on more rigorous courses. He remembers learning the most about himself in Mr. Rodgers physics class. "His discipline taught me I could rise to his expectations and encouraged me to take on a similar approach in my other classes."
Logan is thankful for the relationships and memories he has made with various members of the CHC community. He is grateful for the support and guidance Mr. Brian Facemire, and Mr. Scott McGraw have given him through the years. Logan is most proud of how returners and new members of the soccer team were able to come together and accomplish something no one thought they would. The resiliency, determination and laughs he shared with his two-time back-to-back TCIS and State champion varsity soccer teammates are his fondest memories of high school.
While Logan is looking forward to his next chapter, his advice to his younger sibling is just to keep working hard. He will be working hard at Virginia Commonwealth University, hopefully majoring in computer science to pursue his goal of becoming a software engineer. He wants to get involved in sports clubs offered and is excited he can continue to kick the ball around with some familiar faces. Logan Tucker brought selflessness and innovation to our CHC community in a short amount of time. We will miss his creativity and smile but are excited to see what the future holds for him.
