Student Spotlight – Kris Thompson

By: Patrick Schmidt

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. So call me insane or Anthony Weiner or whatever you like because that’s exactly what this article will be this year. While you may not be getting indecent pictures from me, at least in this article, you will be gaining an insight into what makes some of PMH’s legends tick. First up is “Macho Man” Kris Thompson.
