SandMan attended Camp Thurman as a camper for 5 years. He loved camp as a camper decided it would be great to work there. He is now entering his 5th year as a staff member, and 2nd year as a counselor. While away from Camp Thurman he attends Texas Southern University in Third Ward, Houston, TX where he majors in Finance. In the fall, he plans on interning at Primerica to begin a promising career in the financial field. SandMan loves Camp Thurman because of how much they’ve grown since he was a camper. He loves the message they spread and the professionalism they exhibit while maintaining an extremely fun environment. He loves the fact that they serve God in the fullest, and spread His word to the youth, and provide them with mentors to look up to that help them grow simultaneously.
