About Chester Thacker:
Chester Thacker was an amazing man, who reached out to every individual he came in contact with. He taught all of us that it was great to be different, to follow our dreams, and to make a difference; a difference is exactly what he made in all of our lives. Mr. Thacker is proof that ordinary people do extraordinary things every single day!
Join us for this special Tribute to a wonderful teacher, who gave 34 years to teaching all of us so much not only with education, but in life. Mr. Thacker taught ninth through twelfth grade at Summerville High School and Fort Dorchester High School.
