Meet Eden '23
Hello! My name is Eden Harriman and I’m a junior at Thornton Academy. I’ve been a part of the TA community since middle school, and I have loved it since! TA has so much to offer its students, from a chance to explore the arts to joining a club to playing on a sports team to making lifelong friends. I couldn’t be more grateful for the time I’ve spent here.
My journey with the Thornton Academy community started in 6th grade. Even in middle school, the teachers and staff were so kind and caring to everyone that I immediately felt welcome. That feeling has stayed with me these past 6 years, and I know I wouldn’t be the person I am today without the support and kindness of my teachers and friends, so thank you all!
It’s because of Thornton Academy that I’ve grown my love of musical theater, choreography, singing, reading, and the violin. Here I was given the opportunity to expand my technique and knowledge in ways I couldn’t have done anywhere else, and I couldn’t be more grateful that I had those experiences. From being in the ensemble of the musicals, to playing in the school orchestra, to creating the Student Library Advisory Board with one of my favorite people on campus, I’ve gotten to truly understand how important the arts are to the world and how much creativity and passion can connect people to each other.
I’ve also gotten to know people who share my same interests and are just as energetic as me. It’s absolutely amazing to have people in your life who you can deeply connect with and understand, and TA has helped me meet those people.
TA has made me who I am today, and I hope that after reading this, you’ll want to join our community and grow alongside us. I will forever be grateful for the memories I’ve made here, and I hope that you’ll want to make some too.
