For four years Sam Yeboah ‘17 embraced the role of St. Thomas Renaissance man, earning individual and collaborative acclaim inside a culture that fostered opportunities for learning, growth and personal development.
Yet the century-old tradition of Basilian education was something Yeboah wanted no part of in the weeks and months funneling into his freshman academic year.
“I wanted to go to public school because that’s where all my friends were,” Yeboah says with a laugh. “But now I wouldn’t trade these times for anything … would encourage anyone to make this their destination. I really can’t describe what St. Thomas has meant to me.”
And then in signature Yeboah style he punctuates, “It’s because of the guys I met here, a giant fraternity of brothers fighting for bro-dom!”
Yeboah’s gregarious personality routinely ignited every corner of the campus he encountered, seizing seemingly every occasion to chase his passion, and in doing so, create his own happiness.
